Velsignede Morgen, da Gudsrigets Tunger
traf Jorden som flammende stål.
Fra Jorden mod Borgen nu Arvingen sjunger
på Gudsrigets Tungemål.

German.png German translation

O Morgenstunde, da Zungen des Geistes
wie Schwerter herniedergeflammt.
Aus Enkelmunde den Geist nun preistes
in Liedern, dem Himmel entstammt.
