Tekst: Kolbein Falkeid / Musikk:Jan I. Toft
Vinden rir over jorden.
Den gamle gr krumbyd bort.
Lyngen str sta og stritter imot
Slik den alltid har gjort.
Guds veldige fot har trkket
Landet de og flatt.
Vinden frer den gamle av sted
Og dagen luter mot natt.
Den gamle mumler en salme
Lavt med sprukken rst
Og synker et sted mellom himmel og jord
Ned i Guds grdige hst
Heilo og spove klager
Sturende mellom siv.
Lynglerker skjelver opp og ned
I bnn for et fattig liv
Alt er flyktig som vinden.
Den rir mellom sr og nord.
En torvmyr gaper til himmels
Glemt av den gamle som fr
Regnskyer jager blygr
Over skumringens hav.
Guds ndedrett halser som hunder
Med lenkene hugget av.
Steinene lukker mose
Over strknende flir.
Lyngen biter seg karrig fast
Forbitret, forsmt og forblir!
