Hun er så skær/ She is as bright
She is as bright as the white snow
She is so fine with her yellow hair
She is so straight and pure to behold
She is the most wonderful one I know.
So bright a joy as anyone knows
Others can have for all I care,
But I must own my love.
Surely the sun seems to me bright and clear
But a better light was put in her.
Two joyful eyes this lady has.
In them I feel the mild power of God.
And if they laid the crown of Rome at my feet
But would take my best treasure
That bargain would never do them good.
