På verandan vid havet Op. 38 No. 2

På verandan vid havet

Minns du de skimrande böljornas suck, att vid målet de hunnit
endast en jordisk kust, icke det evigas strand?
Minns du ett vemodsken från himlens ovanskliga stjärnor?
Ack, åt förgängelsens lott skatta de äfven till slut.
Minns du en tystnad, då allt var som sänkt i oändlighetsträngtan,
stränder och himmel och hav, allt som i aning om Gud?

Composer

Jean Sibelius was a Finnish composer and violinist of the late Romantic and early-modern periods. He is best known for his set of seven symphonies, but he also composed over a hundred songs for voice and piano, and various pieces inspired by nature and Nordic mythology.
