Jeg red mig udi lunde

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Jeg red mig udi lunde,
jeg sejled over sjø;
det var sig i mit væne hjem,
der fæsted jeg min mø.

Det var den alfekvinde,
hun er så led og gram:
ret aldrig skal den jomfru skær
til kirken følge ham.

Hør mig, du alfekvinde,
lad fare det besvær;
to hjerter kan ej skilles ad,
som har hinanden kær!

I rode into the wildwood

Language: English after the Norwegian (Bokmål)

I rode into the wildwood,
  I sailed across the sea,
But 'twas at home I wooed and won
  A maiden fair and free.

It was the Queen of Elfland,
  She waxed full wroth and grim:
Never, she swore, shall that maiden fair
  Ride to the church with him.

Hear me, thou Queen of Elfland,
  Vain, vain are threat and spell;
For naught can sunder two true hearts
  That love each other well!
