You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

1. Kväll i skogen [ sung text not yet checked against a primary source]

Language: Swedish (Svenska)


See other settings of this text.

Nu sjunker soln vid skogens rand
och skymningssuset saktar,
du hjärta, som till fjärran land
och fjärran lycka traktar,
se, hur i ro nu hvarje gren
och hvarje grässtrå domna.
Hvi hjärta skälfver du allen,
när alla bladen somna?

Du pockar, att en salighet
hvar stund skall dig beskära,
och väntans visa ödmjukhet
vill aldrig den du lära?
I sömn den stora skogen lugnt
nu bidar gryningsstrimman.
Du hjärta, som än slår så tungt
tag rast till morgontimman.
