Niels W. Gade

In the east, the sun rises; it spreads yellow on the clouds.
(It) goes over the sea and the mountain top,
goes over the countryside and the city.
It comes from the beautiful coast, where Paradise lay.
It bring light and life; It brings life and delight to great and small,
to great and small.
And with God’s Sun there goes out from the east a Heavenly ray on the earth;
A glimpse from Paradise Coast, where the Apple of Life grows.
