Lasse liten

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Världen är så stor, så stor,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
Större än du nånsin tror,
Lasse, Lasse liten! 

Det är hett och det är kallt,
Lasse, Lasse liten! 
Men Gud råder överallt,
Lasse, Lasse liten! 

Många mänskor leva där,
Lasse, Lasse liten! 
Lycklig den som Gud har kär,
Lasse, Lasse liten! 

När Guds angel med dig går,
Lasse, Lasse liten! 
Ingen orm dig bita få,
Lasse, Lasse liten! 

Säg, var trives du nu mest,
Lasse, Lasse liten? 
Borta bra men hemma bäst,
Lasse, Lasse liten!

Kleiner Lasse

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Die Welt, sie ist so groß, so groß,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!
Größer, als du je gedacht,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!

Es ist heiß und es ist kalt,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!
Aber Gott herrscht überall,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!

Viele Menschen leben hier,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!
Glücklich sind, die Gott hat lieb,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!

Gott wird seinen Engeln weisen,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse,
dass dich keine Schlangen beißen,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!

Sag, wo du dich am wohlsten fühlst,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!
Zu Hause, wo’s am schönsten ist,
Lasse, kleiner Lasse!
