The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Wonderful is the Earth

Deilig er jorden, Norwegian lyrics and melody traditional;
Translation by Christian StubÝ
MIDI / Noteworthy Composer

1. Wonderful is the Earth,
mighty is God's heaven,
beautiful the pilgrimage of the souls.
Through the fair realms on the earth
to Paradise we walk in song.

2. Ages shall come,
ages shall pass,
kin shall follow the path of kins;
never ceases the heavenly tones.
in the soul's joyful pilgrim-song!

3. Angels first sang it
to the shepherds on the field;
from soul to soul in joy it passed:
Peace over Earth! Humans rejoice.
A saviour for all time is born!
