Hello,

I have a verse from a burial which I am having difficulty translating into danish. It's abouit a person who died that day to wake op in heaven where there is no more bad dreams and fear, light and peace etc. Hope that someone could help. This is the verse:

Tired, ah yes, so tired dear
I shall soundly sleep tonight,
With never a dream and never a fear,
To wake in the morning light.

Thanks

Træt, åh ja, så træt min skat
Uden frygt, jeg sove vil
Drømmeløst den hele nat
Til morgenlys mig kalder til

Træt jeg er, min skat så kær
Mørk og frygtløs nat er nær
Uden drømme sover jeg
Til morgenlyset kalder mig
