Danish Children Songs - En lille nisse rejste (English translation)


En lille nisse rejste

En lille nisse rejste
med ekstrapost fra land til land,
hans agt det var at hilse
på verdens største mand.
Han kom til stormogulen
og der, hvor kæmpekålen gror,
men mellem alle kæmper
ham tyktes ingen stor.
Da gik han ned til havet
og stirred i det klare vand,
han smilte, thi nu havde
han set den største mand.

A small elf traveled

A small elf traveled
By special delivery from country to country,
His intention was to greet
The world's greatest man.
He came to the Great Mogul Empire
And where giant cabbage grows,
But among all the struggling giants
None seemed great to him.
When he went down to the sea
Staring into the clear water,
He smiled, for now he had
Seen the greatest man.
The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable. (Prov 25:3 KJV)
