Heiemo og Nykkjen
"Heiemo kvad, det song i li.
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
Det høyrde nykkjen, på havet skrid,
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

Heiemo kvad, det song i li.
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
Det høyrde nykkjen, hei'innund.
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

Nykkjen tala til styringsmann:
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
Du styre mitt skip på kristne land!
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

Eg vil meg på kristne land gå,
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
Den vene jomfruva vil eg få.
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

Så gjeng han seg i stova inn
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
med høge hatt og blomekinn
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

Nykkjen han dansa, og Heiemo kvad,
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
det gledde alt folket i stogunne var
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

No må kvor gange heim til seg,
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
Heiemo tek eg på skipet med meg.
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

Heiemo, Heiemo, still di harm,
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
du sku sove på nykkjens arm.
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

Ho stakk til nykkjen i holamot,
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
odden han rann i hjarterot
For de hev sove tidi for lengje.

Her ligg du, nykkjen, fyr ravn og hund
vakna dikko ædelege drengje
enno hev eg min kvedarlund.
For de hev sove tidi for lengje."

Heiemo and the Water Spirit

Heiemo sang her poem:
-Wake up you noble youngsters
The Water spirit heard it, striding on the sea
-Because you now have overslept

The Water spirit spoke to his helmsman
-Wake up you noble youngsters
Steer my ship to the Christian land
-Because you now have overslept

The Water spirit danced and Heiemo sang her poem:
-Wake up you noble youngsters
It pleased all the folks in the houses
-Because you now have overslept

Heiemo, Heiemo, quiet your sorrow
-Wake up you noble youngsters
Υou shall sleep in the arms of the water spirit.
-Because you now have overslept
