Solveigs vuggessang

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Sov, du dyreste Gutten min!
Jeg skal vugge dig, jeg skal våge.

Gutten har siddet på sin Moders Fang.
De to har leget hele Livsdagen lang.

Gutten har hvilet ved sin Moders Bryst
hele Livsdagen lang. Grud signe dig, min Lyst!

Gutten har ligget til mit Hjerte tæt
hele Livsdagen lang. Nu er han så træt.

Sov, du dyreste Gutten min!
Jeg skal vugge dig, jeg skal våge.

Berceuse de Solveig

Language: French (Français) after the Norwegian (Bokmål)

Dors, mon très cher enfant !
Je te bercerai, je veillerai sur toi !

Mon enfant était assis sur les genoux de sa mère.
Tous les deux ils ont joué tous les jours de sa vie.

Mon enfant s'est reposé sur le sein de sa mère,
tous les jours de sa vie. Dieu te bénisse, mon bonheur !

Mon enfant s'est serré contre mon cœur
tous les jours de sa vie. Maintenant il est si fatigué.

Dors, mon très cher enfant !
Je te bercerai, je veillerai sur toi !
