Jag

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Jag gråter blodiga tårar,
de falla för synder och sorg,
för allt som sårat, som sårar
mitt hjärtas sargade borg.

På ingen jag skyller mitt öde;
jag följer min lefnads ström
och rusar med eget flöde
från boja, stängsel och töm.

Jag utan beräkning vänder
till baka till jordens famn
och skrattar vid afgudabränder
åt ära, rykte och namn.

Minä

Language: Finnish (Suomi) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Minä itken verisiä kyyneleitä,
ne vuotavat syntien ja surun tähden,
kaiken sen tähden, joka haavoitti ja haavoittaa
sydämeni raadeltua sisintä.

En minä ketään syytä kohtalostani;
seuraan vain elämäni virtaa
ja kiidän omaa juoksuani
irti poijuista, aidoista ja ohjaksista.

Mitään laskelmoimatta palaan
takaisin maa-emon syliin
ja nauran epäjumalillenne
kunnialle, maineelle ja arvonimille.
