Lyng was lawyer and worked during the Second World War for the Norwegian government-in-exile in London.

In August 1963 Lyng became an Prime Minister, after the left-socialist party of Norway had extracted its support from the social-democratic government Einar Gerhardsens. Lyng could educate a civil coalition government. You were missing however with the socialist majority in the parliament any basis for their politics; the end of this first civil government of the post-war period took place therefore already after four weeks.

1965 became Lyng in the civil government by Bortens minister of foreign affairs, an office, which he held until 1970.
