I can tell by the sun that it's turning late; it will soon be time for the morning service


Explanation:
Actually it's Danish rather than Swedish, but the two are quite similar. The original phrase is more poeti than my translation - might be a quote from a song or a poem that I don't know of.

I can see by the sun that it will soon be time for the morning service


Explanation:
This is a song by Jørgen Moe (the one in 'Asbjørnsen and Moe'), and it's very much Norwegian, thank you very much! :)
The mslody is composed by the famous Norwegian violinist Ole Bull, and the title of the song is "Sæterjentens søndag" (The dairymaid's Sunday), about this dairymaid, all alone in the mountiain farm, longing for her boyfriend.
