Góða Tungl (English translation)

Icelandic
A A

Góða Tungl

Góða tungl um loft þú líður,
ljúft við skýja silfur skaut.
 
Eins og viljinn alvalds býður,
eftir þinni vissu braut.
 
Öllum þreyttum, ljós þitt ljáðu,
læðstu um glugga sérhvern inn.
Lát í húmi, hjörtun þjáðu

Kind Moon

Kind moon, you glide across the sky,
sweetly at the silver lining.
 
As the will of the almighty offers,
according to your steady path.
 
Lend all the tired ones your light,
tiptoe in every window,
But leave the suffering hearts in darkness.
 
Thanks!

Maybe you would like to know, that the lyrics in "Góða Tungl" are not by Samaris. It is written by an old famous Icelandic poet, name Steingrímur Þorsteinsson. He wrote it for an old german folk song that was translated into Icelandic. The name of that song was, Til tunglsins.
