Could this be 'Friesenlied', not 'friensenlied'? In that case this refers to a 'Lied'(='song') sung by or about 'Friesen'(='Frisians'), people living in the northern part of Germany (and eastern part of the Netherlands). Thus, 'Frisian song' could be an appropriate answer, but the second link below points to a specific song by the name 'Friesenlied' and translates it as 'North Sea Song'.

North Sea Song

In view of your other question, "da bin ich zu Hause...", I am sure that you must be referring to the North Sea Song (see the URL Dierk provided).

You'll find the complete text, both in low German and in high German, at http://ingeb.org/Lieder/wodienor.html
(I copied the first verse in each version below...)

Wo de Nordseewellen trecken an de Strand,
Wor de geelen Blöme bleuhn int gröne Land,
|: Wor de Möwen schrieen gell int Stormgebrus,
Dor is mine Heimat, dor bün ick to Hus. :|

Wo die Nordseewellen spülen an den Strand,
Wo die gelben Blumen blühn ins grüne Land,
|: Wo die Möwen schreien schrill im Sturmgebraus,
Da ist meine Heimat, da bin ich zu Haus. :|
