Norwegian term or phrase: lied
"Solveig's Lied" by Edvard Grieg
Jones
English translation:song
Explanation:
Lied is the Norwegian (and German) word for "a song".

Sarah Brightman -- Solveig's song
The winter may pass and the spring disappear
The spring disappear
The summer too will vanish and then the year
And then the year
But this I know for certain: you'll come back again
You'll come back again
And even as I promised you'll find me waiting then
You'll find me waiting then

Oh-oh-oh ....


God help you when wand'ring your way all alone
Your way all alone
God grant to you his strength as you'll kneel at his throne
As you'll kneel at his throne
If you are in heaven now waiting for me
In heaven for me
And we shall meet again love and never parted be
And never parted be!


Oh-oh-oh ....

Thankyou very much for your help. I did not know the word 'lied' originated from the German language instead of the Norwegian.

Thanks.

agree  Even Eifring: I agree that the meaning is "song", but the word "Lied" is German and not Norwegian.
