Herr Ture av Ljungsbro

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Herr Ture, Herr Ture, du gångar på bro 
under rodnande sky, 
under blånande tro 
av all himmelens ljusaste gry.

Herr Ture, Herr Ture, du vaggar på spår 
av all grönskande jord 
i en knoppande vår 
över mullens dignande bord.

Herr Ture, Herr Ture, stig ut i den dag, 
du är himmelsk och ung, 
du är rosig och svag 
som en lek av en drömmande Kung.

Herr Ture, Herr Ture, tag jorden i famn 
som ett spirande frö 
(uti) starkhetens hamn, 
som lär dig att leva och dö.
