Original text and translations

1. Tuonen lehto, öinen lehto!
Siell'on hieno hietakehto,
sinnepä lapseni saatan.

Seill'on lapsen lysti olla,
Tuonen herran voiniolla
kaitsea Tuonelan karjaa.

2. Siel'on lapsen lystiolla,
illan tullen tunditella
helmassa Tuonelan immen.

Onpa kullan lysti olla
Kulta kehdoss' kellahdella
kuullella kehräjä lintuu.

3. Tuonen viita, rauhan viita,
kaukana on vaino, riita,
kaukana kava la maailma.
