i wanna get this tattoed

deafhaenschen  asked:

Hey! Do you know the swedish and/or danish equivalent to the "Give me strength to try" line in WYWSHA? I wanna get it tattoed for my dead godfather and have a meeting with my tattoo artist to make a money plan for all of planned tattos and stuff and would need it but can't find the lyrics in the internet? :)

As far as I know there are three translations to go by: the original Stockholm lyrics (1989-95), the Copenhagen lyrics, and the Stockholm revival lyrics (2016-17). Here’s the respective versions, with English translations:

  • Copenhagen lyrics, by Karen Hoffman: Det vi har haft skal gi mig kraft (what we had shall empower me) at gå min egen vej (to find my own way).
  • Original Stockholm lyrics, by Lars Sjöberg: Hjälp mig bli fri, eller låt bli (Help me become free, or let be), låt mig forsöka själv (let me try myself)
  • Revival Stockholm lyrics, also by Lars Sjöberg: Hjälp mig bli fri från det som var vi (help me become free of what was we/us) låt mig forsöka själv (let me try myself)

The snag here is that the line in Swedish and Danish is rather dependent on the line before. The two lines must be sung together to make sense, or to complete the message. The English one, on the other hand, works fine alone. So make of it what you will, but AFAIK these are the translations available :)

The lotus flower represents the clarity of the heart and mind and also represents strength, good luck, long life honor and respect.

It is a symbol of purity and good fortune.
