Kom nu hit, död

Language: Swedish (Svenska) after the English

Kom nu hit, kom nu hit, död!
I krusflor förvara mig väl;
Hasta bort, hasta bort, nöd!
Skön jungfrun har tagit min själ.
Med svepning och buxbom på kistans lock
Håll dig färdig;
Mång trogen har dött, men ingen dock
Så värdig.

Ingen ros, ingen ros, då
Månde strös på mitt svarta hus;
Ingen vän, ingen vän, må
Störa hvilan i jordens grus.
Mig lägg, för tusen suckars skull,
Åt en sida,
Der ej älskande se min mull
Och kvida.

Tule tänne, tule tänne, kuolema!

Language: Finnish (Suomi) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Tule tänne, tule tänne, kuolema!
Kietokaa minut mustaan harsoon;
mene pois, mene pois, tuska ja hätä!
Kaunis neito on vienyt sieluni.
Käärinliinat ja puksipuun oksa kirstunkannelle,
laita ne valmiiksi:
monikin uskollinen on kuollut, mutta ei kukaan
näin arvokkaasti.

Yhtään ruusua ei silloin
saa sirottaa mustan majani päälle;
ei ainutkaan ystävä saa
häiritä lepoani soraisessa maassa.
Haudatkaa minut, tuhansien huokausten tähden, 
sivummalle,
missä rakastava ystävä ei voi nähdä tomuani
ja valittaa.
