Lyrics:

Vågvaggad

Du är vågvaggad, eldfödd, luftlyft, trädburen. 

Vatten omslöt dig i mitt sköte, 
elden brinner i blodet rött, 
alla vindarna har stämt möte 
i ditt träd som av jord är fött. 
Du är vågvaggad, eldfödd, luftlyft, trädburen.
 
Jag är vågvaggad, eldfödd, luftlyft, trädburen. 
Vatten omslöt mig i ditt sköte, 
elden brinner i blodet rött, 
alla vindarna har stämt möte 
i mitt träd som av jord är fött. 
Jag är vågvaggad, eldfödd, luftlyft, trädburen.

A litteral English translation:

You are Wavecradled, Fireborn, Airlifted, Treeborne

Water surrounded you in my womb
The fire burns in the red blood
All the winds have convened 
in your tree, which is born out of earth 

I am Wavecradled, Fireborn, Airlifted, Treeborne


Commentary:

Sometimes at my workshops we bring paint and create a paint-wall; while some of the choristers are singing others are painting what we are singing - and sometimes, as with this song it is the other way around; we are singing what others are painting...

In a two-day workshop we were rehearsing "Father of the Fire" or "The Spirit is my home", a song about the four elements. As we sang one of the workshop-participants, Catharina Thorsell, painted a beautiful picture of a "tree of fire" standing in water and with the air moving in its crown. 

Underneath she wrote four words: "Vågvaggad, Eldfödd, Luftlyft, Trädburen"  ["Wavecradled, Fireborn, Airlifted, Treeborne]

That night I woke up early with a new song in my head: "Vågvaggad"! The words of Catharina had been supplemented with some additional lyrics and music. I quickly wrote it down and the same afternoon we were singing it next to Catharina's tree!
