Solveigs Vuggesang (Solveig's Cradle Song)

Sov, du dyreste Gutten min!
Jeg skal vugge dig, jeg skal våge.
Gutten har siddet på sin Moders Fang.
De to har leget hele Livsdagen lang.
Gutten har hvilet ved sin Moders Bryst
hele Livsdagen lang. Grud signe dig, min Lyst!
Gutten har ligget til mit Hjerte tæt
hele Livsdagen lang. Nu er han så træt.
Sov, du dyreste Gutten min!
Jeg skal vugge dig, jeg skal våge.

Solveigs Vuggesang (Solveig's Cradle Song)

Sleep, my treasure, my baby boy,
I will rock and watch over my darling,
Crooning lullabies with fondness rife,
May he recall them all the days of his life;
May Mother’s bosom ward off all annoy
All the days of his life. Ah Heaven, that were joy!
On mother’s bosom he shall safely rest
All the days of his life, so weary and distrest.
Sleep my treasure, my baby boy,
I will rock and watch over my darling.
