Du bist vom Schlaf erstanden
Language: German (Deutsch)
Du bist vom Schlaf erstanden
Und wandelst durch die Au.
Da liegt ob allen Landen
Der Himmel wunderblau.
[So lang du ohne Sorgen
Der Himmel bis zum Morgen
Viel Tränen niedergoß.
In stillen Nächten weinet
Oft mancher aus dem Schmerz,
Und morgens dann [ihr]2 meinet,
Stets fröhlich sei sein Herz.

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål) after the German (Deutsch)
Du har stått opp av søvnen
og vandrer gjennom engen.
Der strekker seg over alle land
Himmelen seg vidunderlig blå.
Så lenge du -- uten sorger --
har slumret uten smerter,
har himmelen helt til morgenen
skjenket mange tårer.
I stille netter gråter
ofte mang en av smerte,
og så om morgenen tror dere
at deres hjerte alltid er lykkelig.
