En Moders Skaal

Hans Christian Andersen 1805 (Odense) – 1875 (Copenhagen)



Om ogsaa ude Stormens Slag
Med Hagl paa Ruden trommer,
November bringer os en Dag
Med Solskin og med Sommer,
En deilig Dag, vi kalde vor,
Trods Aarets skarpe Vinde;
Om Sneen fyger udenfor,
Vi har dog Solskin inde.
 
En Moders Vei er Angstens Vei,
Hvert Barn blev kjøbt med Smerte;
Hvor mangen søvnløs Nat laae ei
En Klippe paa dit Hjerte!
Den spæde Knop blev Blomst og Frugt
Ved dine Kjærtegn ømme,
Og Aar for Aar sig viste smukt
Som Vished Haabets Drømme.
 
For dine Børn saa mangen Gang
Du sang — de det ei glemme!
Nu synge de for Dig en Sang
Med sødt bevæget Stemme.
Bliv længe hos os, karsk og glad!
Dig Børnebørn omringe!
I mange Aar et Festens Qvad
De Bedstemoder bringe!
