Sigurd Skavlan
Music by Edvard Grieg

Let us raise the Welcome Song, Brothers, toward the joyous parade.
Let us display high on the banner the harp in its own tongue.
Light a foot, cheerful in mind, Traveling Singers, come in, come in!

Sing together, fellow singers, in a united richness of tones.
Before scattering in your return journey, we will blend soul to soul.
Therefore to our Music Fest, Fellow singers, a most hearty Welcome!

(Loose Translation by Don Berg)
