Austras Dāles vārdi
Bruno Skulte
AT CHRISTMASTIME
Lyrics by Austra Dāle
Sidraboti sniegi snieg,
Mēness miegā mirte mieg,
Tikai bērnam acis platās
Svētku kokā mulsi skatās.
Silvery snow is falling,
The moonlit myrtle drowsing,
But, wide-eyed, the child
Gazes bewildered at the festive tree.
Bērnam apmiglojas skats:
Vai tur Kristus bērniņš pats
Augstu egles galā laistās
Drānās brīnumaini skaistās?
The child's vision becomes blurred:
Is it the Christ Child himself
So radiant at the top of the tree,
So wonderfully attired?
Sidraboti sniegi snieg,
Mēness miegā mirte mieg,
Tikai bērnam acis platās
Kristus atnākšanā skatās.
Silvery snow is falling,
The moonlit myrtle drowsing,
But, wide-eyed, the child
Gazes at the coming of Christ.
Sidraboti sniegi snieg...Silvery snow is falling...
