Lyrics:

Land míns föður, landið mitt
laugað bláum straumi
eilíft vakir auglit þitt
ofar tímans glaumi.
þetta auglit elskum vér,
- Ævi vora á jörðu hér
brot af þínu bergi er,
blik af þínum draumi.

Hvort sem krýnist þessi þjóð
þyrnum eða rósum
hennar sögur, hennar ljóð,
hennar líf vér kjósum.
Ein á hörpu ísa og báls
aldaslag síns guðamáls
æ hún leiki ung og frjáls
undir norður ljósum.

Poem by Jóhannes úr Kötlum
Song composed by Þórarinn Guðmundsson

The song was first performed on June 17, 1944, the day that Iceland gained its independence.

Svefns og vöku skil Play

Árstíðir's second album Svefns og vöku skil explores the boundary between sleep and waking, containing twelve songs written over a period of two years. During this time the sound of Árstíðir matured from its original neo-folk roots, featuring broad, lush string arrangements and revealing a more experimental side of the band.

Svefns og vöku skil was recorded in Studio Hljóðriti in June and July 2011, and was produced by the visionary Ólafur Arnalds and mastered in Berlin by Nils Frahm.
