For Lenge Siden / A Long Time Ago Lyrics
[A Long Time Ago]

[Lyrics by Grutle Kjellson 1995]
[Music by Ivar Bjørnson 1995]

Hymns were sung
In the times when our people still were proud
In the long gone past
A long time ago

Then came the disease
The disease from south
Deception and false knowledge
Infected our minds

Survival of the fittest was forgotten
But still it didn't disappear
Beneath the layers of a thousand years of deception
Burns the ancient northern thoughts

Fight! Don't let your powers disappear
Our sunset shall also be our dawn

They burned our temples
They killed our men
We shall take back
What once were ours

Fight! Deny not your mind
Our sunset shall also be our dawn

We shall once again sing
Hymns from ancient times
Like we did in those days
A long time ago

[Norwegian]

Lovsanger ble sunget
Den gang folket fremdeles var stolt,
I de svundne tider,
For lenge siden

Så kom pesten
Pesten fra sør
Svik og vranære
Forpestet våre sinn

Den sterkes lov ble glemt
Men forsvant ei
Under et lag av tusen års svik
Ulmer den norrøne tanke

Kjemp! La ei din kraft forgå
Vår morgen skal også bli vår kveld

De brente våre hov
De drepte våre menn
Vi skal ta tilbake
Det som engang var vårt

Kjemp! Fornekt et ditt sinn
Vår morgen skal også bli vår kveld

Vi skal igjen synge
Lovsanger fra fordums tid
Slik vi gjorde i de dager
For pesten kom
FOR LENGE SIDEN
