Dag efter dag

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Dag efter dag
stummare blir min bön,
stummare, mera skön
slag efter slag.

År efter år
sucken blir mera tyst,
tiden från smärtan kysst
tår efter tår.

Gång efter gång
hjärtat, som gaf, blott gaf,
tolkas i välljud af
sång efter sång.

Von Tag zu Tag

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

Von Tag zu Tag
wird leiser es, mein Flehn
wird stumm, doch weiter schön
von Tag zu Tag.

Von Jahr zu Jahr
stiller mein Seufzen ist,
Zeiten vom Schmerz geküsst,
Tränen durchs Jahr.

Im Zeitenlauf
tut sich das Herz, das gab
in Harmonie und Sang
und Wohlklang auf.
