Giv meg ej glans, Music Jean Sibelius and Words Zacharias Topelius.
Performed by Kammarkören Sångkraft

Giv mig ej glans

Giv mig ej glans, ej guld, ej prakt
i signad juletid.
Giv mig Guds ära, änglavakt
och över jorden frid.
Giv mig en fest, som gläder mest
den Konung jag har bett till gäst.
Giv mig ej glans, ej guld, ej prakt,
giv mig en änglavakt.

Giv mig ett hem på fosterjord,
en gran med barn i ring.
En kväll i ljus med Herrens ord
och mörker däromkring.
Giv mig ett bo med samvetsro,
med glad förtröstan, hopp och tro.
Giv mig ett hem på fosterjord:
och ljus av Herrens ord.

Till hög, till låg, till rik, till arm
kom, helga julefrid.
Kom barnaglad, kom hjärtevarm
i världens vintertid.
Du ende, som ej skiftar om,
min Herre och min Konung, kom.
Till hög, till låg, till rik, till arm
kom glad och hjärtevarm.

Zacharias Topelius (1887).

Merry Xmas to Everyone

About Yelling Rosa

I am retired. In my spare time I read, write, play the guitar and hike. I have published three verse books in Finnish and recorded my songs. You can listen to them on YouTube. I have translated some of my poems on Yelling Rosa's Weblog. I also like to watch movies. Olen kiinnostunut lukemisesta, kirjoittamisesta, kitaransoitosta ja luonnossa vaeltamisesta. Olen julkaissut kolme runokirjaa ja laulujani on äänitteillä. Voit lukea runojani Yelling Rosan kotisivuilta ja kuunnella laulujani YouTubessa. Olen elokuvafriikki.

      Thank you for your nice and warm comment.
      By the way, the choir comes from Umeå. I found their performance best when I listen to various artists on YouTube.
      Har det skönt i varje kväll 😉

    W tak wyjątkowym dniu przyjmij życzenia na nadchodzący Nowy Rok 2018. Niech będzie czasem radosnym i słonecznym. Życzę, by był to rok spełnionych marzeń i zrealizowanych planów. Niech wszystko układa się po Twojej myśli a wszelkie problemy, zmartwienia i trudności zostaną w starym roku i nie wracają.
