Lyrics:
I træets øverste grene
Sad en pige så alene
Et ansigt sig spejlede i tællelampens skær
Borte var alle hun havde haft så kær
Og dødens vind den strejfede hendes kind

I træets øverste grene sad en pige så alene
Men håbet det boede i hendes unge sind
Som lyset det flakkede i den røde aftenvind
Og livet kyssede hendes kind

Alene de andre er døde
Alene alle er døde
Alene resten er døde
Lys mit lys

3 mile derfra sad i sorg en ungersevend
Hand troede ej mere skulle få en ven
Modløs han stirrede mod aftenhimlen grå
I det fjerne et glimt ud i mørket han så

Han løb gennem stok han løb over sten, gennem moser og krat og forrev sine ben
Men ensom at være det ville han ej, og ran så af sted på den lange mørke vej
Han løb over mark og han løb gennem skov, alt imens pigen sad i træet og sov
Han løb gennem hegn og løb over krat, han stred sig igennem den mørkeste nat

Alene de andre er døde
Alene alle er døde
Alene resten er døde
Lys mit lys

In the tree’s upper branches
Sat a girl so alone
A face is mirrored in counting the lamp inserts
Gone was all she had held so dear
And the wind of death roamed her cheek

In the tree’s upper branches sat a girl so alone
But hoped it lived in her young mind
As the light that flickered in the Red evening wind
And life kissed her cheek

Only the other is dead
All have died alone
The rest have died alone
Light my candle

3 mile away sat in mourning a ungersevend
Hand thought not more should get a friend
Dejected he stared toward the evening sky gray
In the distance a glimpse into the darkness he saw

He ran through the cane he ran over rocks, through marshes and scrub and forrev his legs
But lonely to be the he would not, and ran so off on the long dark road
He ran across the field and he ran through the forest, all the while the girl sat in the tree and slept
He ran through the fence and ran over scrub, contending it through the darkest night

Only the other is dead
All have died alone
The rest have died alone
Light my candle
