Min Tanke er et mægtigt Fjeld

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Min Tanke er et mægtigt Fjeld,
Der over Himlene gaar;
Mit Hjerte er et Hav saa dybt,
Hvor Bølge mod Bølge slaar.

Og Fjeldet løfter dit Billed
Højt mod Himlens Blaa.
Men selv Du lever i Hjertet,
Hvor dybe Brændinger gaa.

Translation(s): FRE GER

Mein Denken ist ein mächt’ger Berg

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Danish (Dansk)

Mein Denken ist ein mächt’ger Berg,
der himmelhoch sich reckt; 
mein Herz ist wie ein Meer so tief,
wo Well’ an Welle schlägt.

Und dieser Berg erhebt dein Bild 
hoch in des Himmels Schein.
Doch du lebst tief im Herzen mir,
meiner Gefühle Schrein.
