This is such fun (and I will take credit — or blame — for changing the name of the tune).

Lyrics & melody: Trygve Hoff

Velsigna du dag over fjordan.
Velsigna du lys over land.
Velsigna de evige ordan om håp og ei utstrakt hand.
Verg dette lille Du gav oss den dagen Du fløtta oss hit.
Så vi kjenne Du aldri vil la oss forkomme i armod og slit.
Vi levde med hua i handa, men hadde så sterk ei tru.
Og ett har vi visselig sanna: vi e hardhaussa vi som Du.
Nu har vi den hardaste ria, vi slit med å kave oss frem
mot lyset og adventsti’a, d’e langt sør tel Betlehem.
Guds fred over fjellet og åsen, la det gro der vi bygge og bor.
Guds fred over dyran på båsen og ei frossen og karrig jord.
Du ser oss i mørketidslandet.
Du signe med evige ord husan og fjellet og vannet og folket
som leve her nord

Bless you day over the fjord.
Bless you light over land.
Bless the eternal words of hope and an outstretched hand.
Guard this little You gave us the day You moved us here.
So we know You will never let us disappear in poverty and toil.
We lived with our head in our hands, but had such a strong faith.
And one thing we certainly have true: we are as tough as You.
Now we have the hardest ride, we struggle to dig our way forward
towards the light and advent time, far south to Bethlehem.
God’s peace over the mountain and the hill, let it grow where we build and live.
God’s peace over the beast in the stalls and a frozen and barren earth.
You see us in the land of darkness.
You sign with eternal words the house and the mountain and the water and the people
who live here in north
