Jeg gik mig ud en sommerdag

traditional Danish
author of text

This lovely Danish tune from the 1600s was given this text in 1847 by NFS Grundtvig, which philosophised an earlier version of the song. The poet describes the beauty of the Danish country, and says that no song is as sweet as one sung in Danish. Grundtvig has been very influential in the formulation of the modern Danish national conscience.
