Lyrics:

Heyr, himna smiður,
hvers skáldið biður.
Komi mjúk til mín
miskunnin þín.
Því heit eg á þig,
þú hefur skaptan mig.
Eg er þrællinn þinn,
þú ert drottinn minn.

Guð, heit eg á þig,
að þú græðir mig.
Minnst þú, mildingur, mín,
mest þurfum þín.
Ryð þú, röðla gramur,
ríklyndur og framur,
hölds hverri sorg
úr hjartaborg.

Gæt þú, mildingur, mín,
mest þurfum þín,
helzt hverja stund
á hölda grund.
Send þú, meyjar mögur,
málsefnin fögur,
öll er hjálp af þér,
í hjarta mér.

Árstíðir's second album Svefns og vöku skil explores the boundary between sleep and waking, containing twelve songs written over a period of two years. During this time the sound of Árstíðir matured from its original neo-folk roots, featuring broad, lush string arrangements and revealing a more experimental side of the band.

Svefns og vöku skil was recorded in Studio Hljóðriti in June and July 2011, and was produced by the visionary Ólafur Arnalds and mastered in Berlin by Nils Frahm.
