PARTS
  • 1 MINNET SJUNGER
  •  -När solen dalar, och det börjar kvällas      
  •  gring gråa torg och vildvinsklädda hus      
  •  vi lyssna gärna till en hämlig källas   
  •  melodiska och meningsfulla sus      
  •                                    
  •  Och minnet sjunger...                
  • 2 DITT HJÄRTA           
  •  -Ditt hjärta är ett världshav...      
  • 3 BLODETS RÖST           
  •  -Och blodet sjöng i ljumma junikvällar
  •  när solen sjönk bland gyllne skyar ned,
  •  och vattnet kluckade mot strandens hällar
  •  när till ett hemlight möte ekan gled...

  • 4 MORGON           
  •  Se, morgonrodnaden sin mantel kastar
  •  med drottninglikt behag på bergens kam
  •  och skönheten med öppna armar hastar
  •  att möta solen som i prakt går fram.
  •                                    
  •  Naturen öppnar sina rika salar
  •  och allt som form och röst och anda har
  •  om livets under och dess välde talar
  •  och genom allt en lyckokänsla far.
  •                                    
  •  Men dagens avskedsblick är full av tårar
  •  för deras skull som intet sett och lärt,
  •  för alla blinda, alla döva dårar
  •  som intet skönt och heligt hålla kärt.
