Solveig's song
Music: Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)
Lyrics: Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906)
The song originates from "Peer Gynt", suite no. 2. (op. 23 no. 19)

Kanskje vil der gå både Vinter og Vår,
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
Oh-oh-oh ....

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!
Oh-oh-oh ....
