Sámi soga lávlla.

Sámi soga lávlla ("Song of the Sami People", lit. "Song of the Sámi Family") was originally a poem written by Isak Saba that was published in the newspaper Sagai Muittalægje for the first time on April 1, 1906. In August 1986, it became the national anthem of the Sami. Arne Sørli set the poem to music, which was then approved at the 15th Sámi Conference in Helsinki in 1992. Sámi soga lávlla has been translated into all of the Sámi languages.

The original Northern Sami words

Guhkkin davvin Dávggáid vuolde
sabmá suolggai Sámieatnan.
Duottar leabbá duoddar duohkin,
jávri seabbá jávrri lahka.
čohkat čilggin, čorut čearuin
allanaddet almmi vuostái.
Šávvet jogat, šuvvet vuovddit,
cáhket ceakko stállenjárggat
máraideaddji mearaide.
Dálvit dáppe buolašbiekkat,
muohtaborggat meariheamit.
Sámisohka sieluin mielain
eahccá datte eatnamiiddis:
Mátkálažžii mánuheabit,
giđđudeaddji guovssahasat, -
ruoškkas, ruovggas rođuin gullo,
juhca jávrriin, jalgadasain,
geresskálla máđiid miel.
Ja go geassebeaivváš gollut
mehciid, mearaid, mearragáttiid,
golli siste guollebivdit
suilot mearain, suilot jávrriin.
Gollin čuvget čáhcelottit,
silban šovvot sámieanut,
šelgot čuoimmit, šleđgot áirrut,
luitet olbmát lávllodemiin
geavgŋáid, guoikkaid, goatniliid.
Sámieatnan sohkagoddi –
dat lea gierdan doddjokeahttá
goddi čuđiid, garrogávppiid,
viehkes vearrevearroválddiid.
Dearvva dutnje, sitkes sohka!
Dearvva dutnje, ráfi ruohtas!
Eai leat doarut dorrojuvvon,
eai leat vieljain varat vardán
sámi siivo soga sis.
Máttarádját mis leat dovle
vuoitán vearredahkkiid badjel.
Vuostálastot, vieljat, miige
sitkatvuođain soardiideamet!
Beaivvi bártniid nana nálli!
Eai du vuoitte vašálaččat,
jos fal gáhttet gollegielat,
muittát máttarmáttuid sáni:
Sámieatnan sámiide!

English Translation
by Ragnar Müller-Wille and Rauna Kuokkanen:[1]

The Song of the Sami Family
Far up North 'neath Ursa Major
Gently rises Saamiland.
Mountain upon mountain.
Lake upon lake.
Peaks, ridges and plateaus
Rising up to the skies.
Gurgling rivers, sighing forests.
Iron capes pointing sharp
Out towards the stormy sea.
Winter time with storm and cold
Fierce blizzards.
Saami kin, with hearts and souls
Their lands do love.
Moonlight for the traveller,
Living Aurora flickering,
Grunt of reindeer heard in groves of birch,
Voices over lakes and open grounds,
Swish of sled on winter road.
Summer's sun casts golden hues
On forests, seas and shores.
Fishermen in gold, swaying
With the golden seas, golden lakes.
Silver Saami rivers gurgling
'round sparkling poles, shining oars.
Singing, men float down
Rapids, great and small,
And waters calm.
Saamiland's people
With unbending strength
Defeated killing enemies, bad trades,
Sly and evil thieves.
Hail thee, tough Saami kin!
Hail thee, root of freedom!
Never was there battle,
Never brother's blood was spilt
Amongst the peaceful Saami kin.
Our ancestors long ago
Trouble makers did defeat.
Let us, brothers, also resist
Staunchly our oppressors.
Oh, tough kin of the sun’s sons,
Never shall you be subdued
If you heed your golden Saami tongue,
Remember the ancestors' word.
Saamiland for Saami!
