Sounds of Home – Leap

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the June 30th edition of Sounds of Home!

Vossevangen

‘Tis Vossevangen that I will choose, and live among the hills of clover;
There all the boys wear their polished shoes, with little jacket buttons silvered over.
Be-ribboned girls dancing there are found, their braids are reaching almost to the ground;
Yes, it is true, when I tell you, ’tis beautiful in Vossevangen!

Upon the hillside are berries sweet, ‘mid hazel brush, oaks and birches;
The little goats leap with nimble feet, the river through the valley rushes.
The smell of earth and the sigh of trees, and songs of birds float upon the breeze.
Yes, it is true, when I tell you, ’tis beautiful in Vossevangen!

Along the water the willows grow; a fairy lives over yonder.
The summer days never seem to slow, for ev’ry hour is filled with wonder.
The waters murmur, the fairy sings; and from a thrush a bell-like greeting rings.
Yes, it is true, when I tell you, ’tis beautiful in Vossevangen!

Text: Carsen Hauch, composite translation
Music: N.P. Hillebrand
