Lasse liten (1900) Op.37 no.2

Lasse liten

Världen är så stor, så stor,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
Större än du nånsin tror,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
Där är hett och där är kallt,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
Men Gud råder överallt,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
Många mänskor leva där,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
Lycklig den som Gud har kär,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
När Guds ängel med dig går,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
Ingen orm dig bita få,
Lasse, Lasse liten!
Säg, var trives du nu mest,
Lasse, Lasse liten?
Borta bra men hemma bäst,
Lasse, Lasse liten!

Lasse, little Lasse

The world is so vast, so vast,
Lasse, little Lasse!
Vaster than you ever think,
Lasse, little Lasse!
There it's warm and there it's cold,
Lasse, little Lasse!
But God rules over all,
Lasse, little Lasse!
Many people live there,
Lasse, little Lasse!
Happy he who is loved by God,
Lasse, little Lasse!
When God's angel with thee goes,
Lasse, little Lasse,
No snake may bite thee,
Lasse, little Lasse!
Say, where do you thrive most,
Lasse, little Lasse?
Away is good but home is best,
Lasse, little Lasse!
