Solveigs sang

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Kanske vil der gå både Vinter og Vår,
og næste Sommer med, og det hele År,
men engang vil du komme, det ved jeg vist,
og jeg skal nok vente, for det lovte jeg sidst.

Gud styrke dig, hvor du i Verden går,
Gud glæde dig, hvis du for hans Fodskammel står.
Her skal jeg vente til du kommer igjen;
og venter du hist oppe, vi træffes der, min Ven!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.

Solveig's Song

Language: English

 The winter may go, and the spring disappear,
 Next summer, too, may fade, and the whole long year,
 But you will be returning, in truth, I know,
 And I will wait for you as I promised long ago.

 May God guide and keep you, wherever you may go,
 Upon you His blessing and mercy bestow.
 And here I will await you till you are here;
 And if you are in Heaven, I'll meet you there.
