Sankta Lucia

Nightly, go heavy hearts

Round farm and steading

On earth, where sun departs,

shadows are spreading.

Then on our darkest night,

Comes with her shining light

Sankta Lucia! Sankta Lucia!

Then on our darkest night,

Comes with her shining light

Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia.

Night-darkling, huge and still.

Hark, something’s stirring!

In all our silent rooms,

Wingbeats are whisp’ring!

Stands on our threshold there,

White clad, lights in her hair,

Sankta Lucia! Sankta Lucia!

Stands on our threshold there,

White clad, lights in her hair,

Sankta Lucia! Sankta Lucia!

Darkness shall fly away

Through earthly portals.

She brings such wonderful

words to us mortals!

Daylight, again renewed,

will rise, all rosy-hued!

Sankta Lucia! Sankta Lucia!

Daylight, again renewed,

will rise, all rosy-hued.

Sankta Lucia! Sankta Lucia!
