Sankta Lucia

Natten går tunga fjät runt gård och stuva.
Kring jord som sol förlät, skuggorna ruva.
Då i vårt mörka hus, stiger med tända ljus,
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia.
 
Natten var stor och stum. Nu hör, det svingar,
i alla tysta rum, sus som av vingar.
Se på vår tröskel står vitkläd, med ljus i hår,
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia.
 
"Mörkret skall flykta snart ur jordens dalar."
Så hon ett underbart ord till oss talar.
Dagen skall åter gry, stiga ur rosig sky,
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia.

Santa Lucia

Night walks with a heavy step round yard and hearth,
As the sun departs from earth, shadows are brooding.
There in our dark house, walking with lit candles,
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
 
Night walks grand, yet silent, now hear its gentle wings,
In every room so hushed, whispering like wings.
Look, at our threshold stands, white-clad with light in her hair,
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
 
Darkness shall take flight soon, from earth's valleys.
So she speaks wonderful words to us:
A new day will rise again from the rosy sky…
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
 
Thanks!
