Till Bruden

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

I namn af hafvet det oändligt vida 
jag helsar dig välkommen till min sida,
ty stormar jagat samman våra öden 
och skola följa dina steg till döden.

Ditt hem blir huset, hvilkets fönster lyser
frän skäret ensligt öfver skum och vågor
men där, när du vid slocknad brasa fryser,
en plötslig vindstöt tänder nya lågor.


Musical settings (art songs, Lieder, mélodies, (etc.), choral pieces, and other vocal works set to this text), listed by composer (not necessarily exhaustive)

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.
