Norwegian Children Songs - Svart senker natten seg (English translation)

Norwegian

Svart senker natten seg

Svart senker natten seg
i stall og stuer.
Solen har gått sin vei,
skyggene truer.
Inn i vårt mørke hus
stiger med tente lys
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia.
 
Natten er mørk og stum.
Med ett det suser
i alle tyste rom
som vingene bruser.
Se, på vår terskel står
hvitkledd med lys i hår
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia.
 
Mørket skal flykte snart
fra jordens daler.
Slik hun et underfullt
ord til oss taler.
Dagen skal atter ny
stige av røde sky -
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia.

Dark the night lowers itself

Dark the night lowers itself
in stables and living rooms
The sun has gone away
the shadows threatens
into our dark house
rises with lit candles
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia
 
The night is dark and mute
Suddenly it swishes
in every silent room
like the wings rustles
Look, at our doorstep stands
dressed in white with candles in hair
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia
 
The darkness shall flee soon
from the valleys of the earth
Like she wondrously
words to us speak.
The day shall once again be new
Rise of red skies
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia
