First verse

Nunarput, utoqqarsuanngoravit
Niaqqut ulissimavoq qiinik.
Qitornatit kissumiaannarpatit
Tunillugit sineriavit piinik.

Second verse

Akullequtaasut merlertutut
Ilinni perortugut tamaani
Kalaallinik imminik taajumavugut
Niaqquit ataqqinartup saani.

Third verse

Taqilluni naami atunngiveqaaq
Kalaallit siumut makigitsi.
Inuttut inuuneq pigiuminaqaaq
Saperasi isumaqaleritsi.


Danish lyrics


First verse

Vort ældgamle land under isblinkens bavn
med lysende snehår om dit hoved!
Du trofaste moder, som bar os i din favn,
mens dine kysters rigdom du os loved.

Second verse

Som halvvoksne børn er vi groet af din jord
og trygt vokset op blandt dine fjelde,
vi kalder os kalaallit i landet, hvor vi bor
ærbødigt for dit hvide åsyns ælde.

Third verse

Umuligt nu længer at blive i ro,
kalaallit, mod større mål vi stævner.
Som fribårne folk vi i landet vil bo;
begynd at tro på jeres egne evner.


English translation


First verse

Our country, which has become so old
your head is all covered with white hair.
Always held us, your children, in your bosom
and gave us the riches of your coasts.

Second verse

As middle children in the family
we blossomed here
Kalaallit, we want to call ourselves
before your proud and honourable head.

Third verse

Humbleness is not the course,
Kalaallit wake up and be proud!
A dignified life is our goal;
courageously take a stand
