Solveig’s Song

Composer: Edvard Grieg
Poet: Henrik Ibsen


Kanske vil der gaa
Baade vinter og vaar,
Baade vinter og vaar
Og næster sommer med,
Og det hele aar,
Og det hele aar,
Men engang vil du komme,
Det ved jeg vist,
Det ved jeg vist,
Og jeg skal nok vente,
For det lovte jeg sidst,
Det lovte jeg sidst.

Gud styrke dig,
hvor du i verden gaar,
I verden garr,
Gud glæde dig, hvis du
For hans fodskammel staar,
For hans fodskammel staar.
Her skal jeg vente
Til du kommer igjen,
Du kommer igjen;
Og venter du hist oppe,
Vi træffes der, min ven,
Vi træffes der, min ven.
