Sydämeni laulu
Language: Finnish (Suomi) 
Available translation(s): GER
Tuonen lehto, öinen lehto!
Siell' on hieno hietakehto,
sinnepä lapseni saatan.

Siell' on lapsen lysti olla,
Tuonen herran vainiolla
kaitsia Tuonelan karjaa.

Siell' on lapsen lysti olla,
illan tullen tuuditella
helmassa Tuonelan immen.

Onpa kullan lysti olla,
kultakehdoss' kellahdella,
kuullella kehräjälintuu.

Tuonen viita, rauhan viita!
Kaukana on vaino, riita,
kaukana kavala maailma.
