Song-lyrics in Norwegian (autogenerated English translation)
“Når Båten Seiler Inn” / “When the boat comes in”
“With the message, that people in need should get help and always be met with dignity, “When the boat sails into” should warm the hearts in concert halls, churches and living rooms before Christmas. All funds collected as a result of the historic recording, will entirely go to help those who are fleeing from bomb rain and hopeless poverty.
– For the first time since the Balkan war, the Norwegian Church Aid mobilizes to an emergency operation on European soil, and the needs are enormous and urgent. That such an all-star team line up for the refugees and our work with such a beautiful and strong song is amazing. We are touched and incredibly grateful, says Anne-Marie Helland, General Secretary of Norwegian Church Aid.”
