Sang til friheten

Du er det fineste jeg vet
Du er det dyreste i verden.
Du er som stjernene, som vindene, som bølgene,
som fuglene, som blomstene på marken

Du er mitt lys, du er min venn -
og troen, håpet, kjærligheten.
Du er mitt blod og mine lunger, mine øyne,
mine skuldre, mine hender og mitt hjerte.

Du er det fineste jeg vet
Du er det dyreste i verden.
Du er som stjernene, som vindene, som bølgene,
som fuglene, som blomstene på marken

Friheten er ditt vakre navn.
Vennskapet er din stolte søster.
Rettferdigheten er din bror, og freden er din mor,
din far er kampen, fremtiden ditt ansvar.

Song of Freedom

You're the finest I know
You're the most expensive in the world
You're like the stars
Like the wind
Like the waves
Like the birds
Like the flowers on the ground

You're my guiding star and friend
You're my faith, my hope, my love
You're my blood
And my lungs
My eyes
My shoulders
My hands and my heart

Freedom is your beautiful name
Friendship is your proud mother
Justice is your brother
Peace is your sister
The fight is your father
The future is your responsibility

You're the finest I know
You're the most expensive in the world
You're like the stars
Like the wind
Like the waves
Like the birds
Like the flowers on the ground


        

by Silvio Rodríguez Domínguez

Silvio Rodríguez Domínguez (born November 29, 1946 in San Antonio de los Baños) is a Cuban musician, and a leader of the nueva trova movement. He is considered Cuba's best known folk singer and known for his highly eloquent and symbolic lyrics. Many of his songs have become classics in Latin American music, such as Ojalá, Playa Girón, Unicornio and La maza. Rodríguez, musically and politically, is a symbol of the Latin American left wing. Several of his songs praise the revolutionary figure Che Guevara and he is also currently deputy in the Cuban parliament. His lyrics are notably introspective. His songs combine romanticism, love (even eroticism), revolutionary politics, and idealism. He has released nearly 20 albums. The name of this song is in Cuban: "El día feliz que está llegando" or english: "Song to freedom"
