Í Fjarlægð

Language: Icelandic (Íslenska)

Þig sem í fjarlægð fjöllin bak við dvelur
og fagrar vonir tengdir líf mitt við,
minn hugur þráir, hjartað ákaft saknar,
er horfnum stundum ljúfum dvel ég hjá.

Heyrirðu ei, þig hjartað kallar á?
Heyrirðu ei storm er kveðju mína ber?
Þú fagra minning eftir skildir eina,
sem aldrei gleymist meðan lífs ég er.

Au loin

Language: French (Français) after the Icelandic (Íslenska)

De toi, comme derrière des montagnes lointaines,
Beaux espoirs de ma vie,
Mon esprit se languit, mon cœur manque d'énergie,
Quand les moments de bonheur passés me reviennent.

N'entends-tu pas que mon cœur t'appelle ?
N'entends-tu pas la tempête de mes paroles ?
Tu m'as laissé un beau souvenir,
Que je n'oublierai jamais de ma vie.
