lyrics

CÂNTECUL SOARELUI

Soare răsare nimănui nu mă da
Soare apune hai de nu mă lăsa
Soare răsare nimănui nu mă da
Soare apune singură nu mă lăsa
În lumea rea

Umblă-n zare mândrul soare
Umblă să se-nsoare
Nouă ai pe nouă cai
Ce pasc noaptea-n rai
Umblă cerul și pământul
Repede ca vântul

Dar toți caii-și obosea
Potrivă nu-și găsea
Precum sora sa Ileana
Ileana Cosânzeana
Ce-i frumoasă ca o floare
În iarnă fără soare

Soare răsare nimănui nu mă da
Soare apune hai de nu mă lăsa
Soare răsare nimănui nu mă da
Soare apune singură nu mă lăsa
În lumea rea

Dara Domnul-Dumnezeu
Cuvânta cu graiul său;
Iar când Domnul cuvânta,
Lumile se spăimânta,
Mările se tupila,
Munţii se cutremura,

Tu Ileană Cosânzeană
Fără de prihană
Și tu soare luminate
Fără de păcate
Voi cu ochii vă zăriți
Dară fiți despărțiți.
Veșnic să vă alungați
Cerul cutreierați

Soare răsare nimănui nu mă da
Soare apune hai de nu mă lăsa
Soare răsare nimănui nu mă da
Soare apune singură nu mă lăsa
În lumea rea


THE SONG OF THE SUN

Oh, high-rising Sun, let me not be others’ sworn
Oh, low-sinking Sun, leave me not to mourn
Oh, high-rising Sun, let me not be others’ sworn
Oh, low-sinking Sun, leave me not forlorn
Midst the wicked borne.

Seeks the sun ’cross welkins starry
Bride he hopes to marry
Nine astride on horses nine
Grazed in heaven’s night
Seeks on land and seeks on high
Faster than the wind can fly

Though his horses he’d exhaust
Match for him was ever lost
One like his sister Ileana
Ileana Cosânzeana
Who is fair as a flower
On a sunless wintry hour

Oh, high-rising Sun, let me not be others’ sworn
Oh, low-sinking Sun, leave me not to mourn
Oh, high-rising Sun, let me not be others’ sworn
Oh, low-sinking Sun, leave me not forlorn
Midst the wicked borne.

Lord Almighty way up high
Let his voice sound in the sky;
As th’Almighty spoke his word,
The worlds cowered when they heard,
All the seas in hiding blurred,
All the mountains shook and stirred.

You, Ileana Cosânzeana,
Pure as fabled manna,
And you, brightly shining sun,
Sinless as is none
Your eyes on each other dart
But for ay will stay apart.
Chase away each other’s heart
For the skies forever start.

Oh, high-rising Sun, let me not be others’ sworn
Oh, low-sinking Sun, leave me not to mourn
Oh, high-rising Sun, let me not be others’ sworn
Oh, low-sinking Sun, leave me not forlorn
Midst the wicked borne.
