To brune Øjne jeg nylig så

Language: Danish (Dansk)

To brune Øjne jeg nylig så
I dem mit Hjem og min Verden lå.
Der flammed' Snillet og Barnets Fred;
Jeg glemmer dem aldrig i Evighed!

Two brown eyes

Language: English after the Danish (Dansk)

Two brown eyes I have recently seen,
They conceal my home and my whole life,
They radiate friendship and childlike peace,
They will never be out of my thoughts.
