About Det kimer nå til julefest | Arr. Inger Elise Reitan
Det kimer nå til julefest is a Danish Christmas carol.
The lyrics were written by the Danish poet N.F.S. Grundtvig in 1817, and the music was composed by Carl Christian Nicolaj Balle in 1850.
A number of adaptations of the song into English exist. The earliest, entitled The Bells of Christmas Chime Once More, was translated by Charles P. Krauth in 1867. A later adaptation bore the title O Fir Tree Dark, and was recorded by Bing Crosby in 1947.
