Koppången is een prachtig Zweeds winterlied. Hier wordt het gezongen door Helen Sjöholm

There is silence around me in this peaceful winter night.
From the church down in the valley I can see the candlelight.
And I stopped for a moment in this winter paradise,
When I heard a choir singing through the darkness and the ice.

And the rays of lights behind the window's vaulted frames
Have united the souls in hope that something great is waiting.
And I know that those who have left us here had the same thoughts as I,
We're like flames in the darkness and stars up in the sky.

And I see how they sparkle and they fade before my eyes
And the truth is coming closer like a wonder in disguise.
We are caught here for a moment like an imprint of a hand
On an old and frosted window or a footprint in the sand.

For a while I'm eternal - that's the only thing I know,
I am here and we share our dreams about our destination.
It is cold out here, the snow is white but I'm warm deep inside.
I am warm 'cause I know that my faith will be my guide.

  1. Klary, Erg bedankt voor het publiceren van de naam van deze zangeres met haar prachtige lied. Ik ga zeker proberen iets van haar te pakken te krijgen, ik vind het zo mooi!

  2. Hallo Gonny, ja, prachtig hè. Ik kende eerst alleen de versie van Anne Sofie von Otter, maar deze is veel mooier!
