Vor sol er bleven kold

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Vor sol er bleven kold,
vi er i vintervold
og dunkle dage.
Men nu er nedgang endt
og håbet tændt,
ja, håbet tændt,
for nu er solen vendt.
nu kommer lyset og den lange dag tilbage.

Det grønne, skønne træ
forjætter sommerlæ
og søde skove.
I julelysets skær
som stjerners hær
ja, stjerners hær,
er solens under nær
og alle gule blomstersole små, som sove.

I granens brændte duft
får svundne somre luft
og de, der kommer.
Det danske, svaje år
i ringgang går,
ja, rlnggang går,
omkring en evig vår.
Syng alle sjæle med om Danmarks fagre sommer.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
