The mayor of Reykjavík, Dagur B. Eggertsson, sat in on a morning assembly in Laugarnesskóli elementary school in Laugardalur valley, Reykjavík.

A singing assembly is held every morning at the school, a tradition that has continued for decades. That particular morning the students flawlessly sang the song ‘Ferðalok’ (Journeys end), a beautiful ballade made famous by the late Óðinn Valdimarsson.

 

 

Hinn daglegi morgunsöngur í Laugarnesskóla er ein fallegasta morgunstund sem hægt er að hugsa sér. Maður fyllist ró og hlýju. Það er frábært að verpa vitni að þessari innlifun og áreynslulausim aga þar sem allir koma, fara og sitja í fallegri röð með sínum bekk. Heyriði bara "Ég er kominn heim" í þessum flutningi. Takk fyrir mig!

He posted this video on his Facebook page of school children singing, commenting: “This fills you with warmth and tranquillity … Just listen as they sing “Ég er kominn heim” (I’m home again). Thank you.” 

 

And here's the original, sung by Óðinn Valdimarsson.
