Incircle-set by foes / kringsatt av fiender / kringsat af fjender

Text: Nordalh Grieg. 1936. Music: Otto Mortensen 1951. Translation: Trepio 2020

Vers 1.
Incircle-set by foes                     Aminor E7
Enter thy time and life                       Aminor
Doing a bloody storm                F           G
We thou would strife                 C           F
Anxious perhaps thou ask      Dminor7 E7 
Uncovered open to see           Aminor   E7
What shall I fight with                         Aminor      
What would my weapon be   B7   E7 Aminor

Vers 2.
Against violence, this cover shall be 
Thus be thy sword
Faith in our very life
Worth of humanity
For all our futures sake
Seize it and practice it
Die if thou have to, but
Increase it and strengthen it

Vers 3.
Constant grenades they go
By there sliding tie
End there urge towards death
End this by spirit
War is contempt for life
Imperial peace to choose
Throw in thy forces
Death shall loose  

Vers 4.
Love – and enrich with dream
all vast that was will shout
Enter the unknown path, 
the answer to wring out
Unbuild powerplants, 
unknown stars that shines
Create them,
with spared lives bold minds 

vers 5.
Nobel be human
Rich be the earth
Distress and hunger
Due twas deceit 
Crushed in the name of life
The unjust shall fall
Sunshine and bread and mind
Owned by and to all shall fall

Verse 6.
So drops the weapons 
Forceless down
We create human worth
We create peace
Those in there arms would
Carry a burden
Precious and unloosable
Can though not kill

verse 7.
This be the vow of ours
Sibling twas siblings furled
As we will benefit
This human world
We will take care of
Our world warm and gracious
As we a child would hold
In our arms cautious.
