Min Tanke er et mægtigt Fjeld
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE GER
Min Tanke er et mægtigt Fjeld,
Der over Himlene gaar;
Mit Hjerte er et Hav saa dybt,
Hvor Bølge mod Bølge slaar.

Og Fjeldet løfter dit Billed
Højt mod Himlens Blaa.
Men selv Du lever i Hjertet,
Hvor dybe Brændinger gaa.

Mes pensées sont une haute montagne
Language: French (Français)  after the Danish (Dansk) 
Mes pensées sont une haute montagne
Qui montent au-dessus du ciel ;
Mon cœur est une profonde mer,
Où les vagues contre les vagues se jettent.

Et la montagne montre ton image
Là-haut, dans le bleu du ciel.
Mais toi, tu vis dans mon cœur,
Où s'agite un violent déferlement.
