Margretes Vuggesang

Nu løftes Laft og Lofte til Stjernehvælven blaa,
nu flyver lille Haakon med Drømmevinger paa.

Der er en Stige stillet fra Jord til Himmel op,
nu stiger lille Haakon med Englene tiltop.

Guds Engle smaa de vaage for Vuggebarnets Fred,
Gud sign dig, lille Haakon, din Moder vaager med!

Margretens Wiegenlied

Nun Schloß die Äuglein beide zum Schlaf klein Haakon kaum,
da sieth er schon mit Lachen den allerschönsten Traum.

Es baut sich eine Stiege hinauf zum Himmelszelt,
drauf steigen Gottes Englein hernieder zu der Welt.

Die hüten seinen Schlummer getreu die ganze Nacht,
schlaf süß und sanft, klein Haakon, auch deine Mutter wacht.

Translation by Hans Schmidt

Margarethe's Lullaby

Now roof and rafters blend with starry vault on high,
Now flieth little Hakon on dreamwings through the sky.

There mounts a mighty stairway from earth to God's own land
There Hakon with the angels goes climbing hand in hand.

God's angel-babes are watching thy cot, the still night through,
God bless thee, little Hakon, thy mother watcheth too.

Translation by William Archer
