15. Hdźe so Mdrja, Zelenja - My Blessings


15. Hdźe so mdrja, zelenja
(Home, Nature)


Written by Handrij Zejler

Music: Allegro moderato

1. Hdźe so m-drja, ze-le-nja,
na-e ho-ry, haj-ni-ća,
hdźe mje stro-wja ze-tku-jo
w zna-tym sło-wje kra-je-njo:
Tam su mo-je wje-se-la, tam mje će-hnje, tam chcu ja.
Tam su mo-je wje-se-la, tam mje će-hnje, tam chcu ja.

2. Hdźe te zwony na cyrkwi
lubje rěča k wutrobi,
do wsy hlada z wječorka
pozłoćana cyrkwička:
Tam su moje wjesela, tam mje ćehnje, tam chcu ja.
Tam su moje wjesela, tam mje ćehnje, tam chcu ja.

3. Hdźe tam rěka pluskoce
přez te hona domowne,
Hdźe do hatka, do rěčki
swěća jasne hwězdźički:
Tam su moje wjesela, tam mje ćehnje, tam chcu ja.
Tam su moje wjesela, tam mje ćehnje, tam chcu ja.

4. Hdźe tam kwětki pisane
pya łuki domjace,
hdźe tam nae polo je,
ito so tam zmawuje:
Tam su moje wjesela, tam mje ćehnje, tam chcu ja.
Tam su moje wjesela, tam mje ćehnje, tam chcu ja.

5. Hdźe mje wita narodny
dom a towar zradowny,
hdźe te znate holiča
k wěncam rutu ćipaja:
Tam su moje wjesela, tam mje ćehnje, tam chcu ja.
Tam su moje wjesela, tam mje ćehnje, tam chcu ja.


15. My Blessings


Translation and lyrics by Gerald Stone

1. Where our hills and woodlands lie
Green and blue across the sky,
Where the men I knew when young
Greet me in my native tongue
There my joys and blessings reign,
There I long to be again.

2. Where the church-bells, as they ring,
To my heart a message bring,
And the church at eventide
Scans the village golden-eyed,
There my blessings lie in store,
There I long to be once more.

3. Where the river murmurs clear
Through my homeland pastures dear,
Where in every pond and stream
From the sky the bright stars gleam,
There my joys and blessings reign,
There I long to be again.

4. Where bright flowers of every kind
Deck the meadows of my mind,
Where our fields before me lie,
Filled with waving, drifting rye,
There my blessings lie in store,
There I long to be once more.

5. Where my birthplace, like a friend,
Greets me at my journey's end,
Where familiar girls galore
Think about their bottom drawer,
There my joys and blessings reign,
There I long to be again
