The First time I heard Solveig’s song, the tune struck something in my heart before the words made any sense to me.
Now, after so many years, it still touches me deeply, hearing Solveig singing her trust in Love.
og neste Sommer med og det hele År,
men en gang vil du komme, det vet jeg vist,
og jeg skal nok vente, for det lovte jeg sidst.
Gud styrke dig, hvor du i Verden går,
Gud glæde dig, hvis du for hans Fodskammel står.
Her skal jeg vente til du kommer igjen;
og venter du hist oppe, vi træffes der, min Ven
The winter may pass and the spring disappear
The spring disappear
The summer too will vanish and then the year
And then the year
But this I know for certain: you’ll come back again
You’ll come back again
And even as I promised you’ll find me waiting then
You’ll find me waiting then
God help you when wand’ring your way all alone
Your way all alone
God grant to you his strength as you’ll kneel at his throne
As you’ll kneel at his throne
If you are in heaven now waiting for me
In heaven for me
And we shall meet again love and never parted be
And never parted be!
