Greenlandic/Kalaallisut lyrics

Nunarput, utoqqarsuanngoravit niaqqut ulissimavoq qiinik.
Qitornatit kissumiaannarpatit tunillugit sineriavit piinik.

English translation

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.
As middle children in the family we blossomed here Kalaallit,
we want to call ourselves before your proud and honourable head.
With a burning desire to develop what you have to give, renewing,
removing your obstacles of our desire to move forward, forward.
The way of matured societies is our zealous goal to attain;
the effect of speech and letters we long to behold.
Humbleness is not the course, Kalaallit wake up and be proud!
A dignified life is our goal; courageously take a stand.

Kalaallit inuiattut erinarsuutaat/Greenland’s National Anthem ”Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit”/”Our ancestral land” af/by Henrik Lund - Lyrics (1916) Music by Jonathan Petersen

Our ancient land of ice flashing port With bright snowhair on your head! You faithful mother who bore us in your embrace, While your coasts wealth you promised us

As half-grown children, we are grown on your soil And confidently grown up among your mountains we call ourselves Kalaallit in the country where we live reverently of your countenance white antiquity(?)

And all the while we spend your bulging cloth, we long for the world´s new forms, we remove every obstacle that hampers you, our mother, and blithely toward goals we remove storm

The advanced people gave us an example, And we will also strive Waves while the world is our walking stick to carry us forward and gives new powers

Impossible any longer to be at rest, Kalaallit against larger targets we rallies as a freeborn people of our country will live start to believe in your own abilities
