Heinillä Härkien Kaukalon – Christmas Songs 2017 Day 14

Leave a comment

Heinillä Härkien Kaukalon is a Finnish Christmas carol that translates as ‘On the hay, in the bulls’ trough’.
I heard it on an album by Chelsea Moon; the version below is an acapella one by a group called Rajaton.

The lyrics:
1.
Heinillä härkien kaukalon
nukkuu lapsi viaton:
Enkelparven tie kohta luokse vie
rakkautta suurinta katsomaan.
2.
Helmassa äitinsä armahan
nukkuu Poika Jumalan;
Enkelparven tie kohta luokse vie
rakkautta suurinta katsomaan.
3.
Keskellä liljain ja ruusujen
nukkuu Herra ihmisten:
Enkelparven tie kohta luokse vie
rakkautta suurinta katsomaan.
4.
Ristillä rinnalla ryövärin
nukkuu uhri puhtahin:
Enkelparven tie kohta luokse vie
rakkautta suurinta katsomaan.

English translation:

1.
On the hay, in the bulls’ trough
Sleeps an innocent Child.
The path of a flock of angels
Soon leads to Him
To marvel at the greatest Love.
2.
In the hems of the beloved mother
Sleeps the Son of God.
The path of a flock of angels
Soon leads to Him
To marvel at the greatest Love.
3.
In the midst of lilies and roses
Sleeps the Lord of people.
The path of a flock of angels
Soon leads to Him
To marvel at the greatest Love.
4.
At the cross beside a robber
Sleeps the purest Victim.
The path of a flock of angels
Soon leads to Him
To marvel at the greatest Love.
