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

Säterjentens söndag

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

På solen jag ser, den stiger så klar, 
mot högmässotimman det lider. 
Ack den, som en stund fick önska sig kvar
bland folk som på kyrkoväg skrider! 

När solskivan stigit så högt den kan nå 
på fjället, som lyser i flamman, 
då vet jag, i dalen klockorna gå, 
då ringer i tornet det samman. 

Vad gagnar det väl, att boken jag tar 
och höjer i säterlid sången? 
Mitt loft är för högt, och tonen den far 
med bönen i höjden förgången. 

Ack, finge i dag jag blanda min röst 
med alla de övrigas stämma. 
Gud give, det snart må lida mot höst, 
Gud give, jag snart vore hemma.

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.
