Langt mod syd og Long to the south and højt mod nord, high towards the north, øst og vest, east and west, hvor palmer gror where palm trees grow Lever unge danske mænd, Young Danish men live, der ud fra hjemmet for, who left their home, Hundred tusinder af mil Hundreds of thousands of miles skiller os fra venners smil; Separate us from our friends’ smiles; Svale flyv fra sted til sted Swallows fly from place to place, og tag en hilsen med.

PARTIAL NORWEGIAN TRANSLATION (Same as Danish translation into English)! Hils fra meg der hjemme I den stille tause natt står jeg her ved skipets ratt, under himlens stjernevell,ene og forlatt. Under himlens høye tak høres fjerne vingeslag, fugletrekket atter går mot nord, mot lyse vår. Hils fra meg der hjemme,hils min far og mor, hils de grønne lier og den blanke fjord. Greet the green hills and the shining fjord. Hvis jeg hadde vinger, fløy jeg hjem med deg til de lyse netter. Hils dem! Hils fra meg. “H ils fra mig Derhjemme” was first published in Denmark in The lyrics were by a revue artist named Ludvig Brandstrup ( ). The music was by Elith Worsing ( ). It was sung at the Deutsch-Schwedische Gesellschaft Heidelberg e.V. in the 1980s, and heard at the Elkhorn, Iowa Danish Tivoli Fest in 2010 (To be held on 26-27May2012 this year). “ Hils fra mig Derhjemme” was at first regarded as a sailor song, but in America it became a beloved expression of the immigrant's longing for the home country. Perhaps more than any other Scandinavian song it captures the intense love of the immigrants for their homeland, and the pain that separation from family and friends they suffered when sailing across the wide Atlantic to America. Tekst: Ludvig Brandstrup 1922
