Und ich wanke durch die Straßen

Nå overvant jeg det sterkeste trollet
Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Nå overvant jeg det sterkeste trollet,
Fra det mørkeste landet fant jeg veien hjem
ledet av en hvit eventyrhånd -
Klokkene gjaller tungt.
Og jeg vakler gjennom gatene
hemmet av søvn.
