Hvita, hvita liljorna dofta

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Hvita, hvita liljorna dofta; 
lundali och lej! 
Dofta ock de hvita konvaljer. 
Hvitare är ditt sinn, 
drömda bruden min, 
hvitare än liljor och konvaljer.

Gula, gula rosorna blomma; 
lundali och lej! 
blomma ock de gyllene stjärnor. 
Renare än allt guld, 
strålar du utan skuld,
klarare än alla gyllne stjärnor.

Hög, höga himmelen blånar; 
lundali och lej! 
Blånar ock det djupa hafvet. 
Högre blånar din stig, 
aldrig hinner jag dig, 
fjärran, fjärran, bortom djupa hafvet.
