'Se solen sjunker' - Swedish folksong

The song thought to lie behind the slow movement of Schubert's Piano Trio in E flat major, op. 100

Se solen sjunker ner bak höga bergens topp.
För nattens mörka skuggor Du flyr o sköna hopp.
Farväl. Farväl.
Ack, vännen glömde bort sin trogna väna brud.
La la la la la la la &c

See the sun is setting fast behind each mountain peak.
Ere night comes with dark shadows, you flee, sweet hope now bleak.
Farewell. Farewell.
Ah, the friend’s thoughts are no more of his fair and faithful bride.
La la la la la la la &c
