Denmark’s Garden
Oskar Gyldmark

1. Now hangs high above Denmark’s garden, like a bell hidden in the plain dawn,
the bell-like larks and blissfully chimes the early choir beneath a golden cloud.
With singing it blesses the hours of the day that they may proceed with singing anew.

4. But, you who hear on Denmark’s garden your burden of despondency with bowed back,
bathe yourself in the morning’s clear water when the marsh sprite has finished its brewing,
its beautiful clarity frees your forehead; with singing it blesses you well and safe.
