Kongesangen (Song of the King) is Norway's Royal anthem. The lyrics come in several versions. The first version (Gud signe kongen vor) was written by Henrik Wergeland, but the version used today and quoted below was written by Gustav Jensen for the coronation of King Haakon VII in 1906. It was inspired by the British Royal and National anthem, and set to the same tune as "God Save the Queen".
