Ó, leyf mér þig að leiða til landsins fjalla heiða með sælu sumrin löng, þar angar blóma breiða, við blíðan fuglasöng. Þar aðeins yndi fann ég, þar aðeins við mig kann ég, þar batt mig tryggðaband; því þar er allt sem ann ég, það er mitt draumaland.

Oh, laisse-moi te conduire Au pays des douces collines, Et des longs étés doux pleins de bonheur, Là se répand le parfum des fleurs. Et le tendre chant des oiseaux Là seulement j'ai ressenti la joie, Là seulement je peux vivre, Là la fidélité me lie ; Il y a tout ce que j'aime, Là est le pays des rêves.
