färöer und island

Mín móðir

Mín móðir hon er sum ein drotning
Hon er sum tað vakrasta lag

Mín móðir hon er sum ein blóma
Hon er sum eitt livandi træ

Mín móðir er heim mítt kæra
Mín móðir mítt tryggasta stað

Mín móðir er bjartasta glæman
Hon lýsir mær døkkan veg

Min móðir er sterkasta hondin
Trygt heim aftur leiðir hon meg

Mín móðir hjá tær eg standi
Í hjartanum goymi eg teg

My Mother

My mother she is like a queen,
she is like the finest melody.

My mother she is like a flower,
she is like a living tree.

My mother is my dear home.
My mother is my safest place.

My mother is the brightest beam,
she enlights me the dark way.

My mother is the strongest hand,
she leads me back home safely.

My mother, I stand by you,
I keep you in my heart.
