Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Sang til juletræet

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Du grønne, glitrende træ, goddag!
Velkommen, du, som vi ser saa gjerne,
med julelys og med norske flag
og høit i toppen den blanke stjerne!
Ja, den maa skinne,
for den skal minde
os om vor Gud!

Den første jul, i et fremmed land,
sin store stjerne Vorherre tændte;
den skulde vise vor jord, at han
den lille Jesus til verden sendte.
I stjerneglansen
gik engledansen
om Betlehem.

Om Jesusbarnet fortalte mor
saa mangen aften, vi sad herhjemme;
vi kan hans bud og hans milde ord,
vi ved, at aldrig vi dem maa glemme.
Naar stjernen skinner,
om ham os minder
vort juletræ!

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 fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
