Translation of the song Dod, Dieviņi artist Līga Priede

Latvian

Dod, Dieviņi

English translation

God, give me

Dod, Dieviņi, dodamo

Give me, God*, what you have to give

Es saņemšu ņemamo

I will take what I have to take

Es saņemšu ņemamo

I will take what I have to take

Ar abām rociņām

With both my hands*

Dod, Dieviņi, lietum līt

God let the rain fall

Nejās tautas pieguļā

People will not pasture their horses at night

Būs manām telītēm

My little heifers*

Svētu rītu āboliņ’

Will have clover in the saint morning

Dod, Dieviņi, man zirdziņu

God give me a horse*

Es negribu lepni jāt

I don’t want to ride out proudly

Birzī man pieši auga

My spurs grew in a birch forest

Liepienā iemauktiņi

Bridle* in a linden forest

Dod, Dieviņi, siltu sauli

God, give the warm sun

Jel vakara pusītē

In the evening hours

Dod, Dieviņi, lēnas tautas

God, give placid people

Jel mūžiņa galiņā

At the ending* of a lifetime*
