EK HET ’N HUISIE BY DIE SEE, DIS NAG
EK HOOR AANEEN, AANEEN, DIE GOLWE SLAAN
TEENAAN DIE ROTS WAAROP MY HUISIE STAAN
MET AL DIE OSEAAN SE WOESTE KRAG
EK HOOR DIE WINDE HUIL, ’N KREUN, ’N KLAG
SOOS VAN VERLORE SIELE IN HUL NOOD
AL DWALEND, KLAGEND, WAT IN GRAF EN DOOD
GEEN RUS KON VIND NIE MAAR NOG SOEK EN SMAG
MY VUURTJIE BRAND, MY KERSIE GEE SY LIG
EK HOOR DAN MAAR DIE STORM DAARBUITE
EK HOOR HOE RUK DIE WINDE AAN MY RUITE
HIER BINNE IS DIT VEILIG, WARM EN DIG.
KOM NAG, KOM WEER EN WIND, KOM OSEAAN
DIT IS ’N ROTS WAAROP MY HUISIE STAAN.
Laurika Rauch sings this beautiful song in Afrikaans. It is all about the small cottage down by the sea, the wind and the waves and the safety feeling inside.
Laurika Rauch (born in Cape Town) is a South African singer who sings in the Afrikaans language as well as English. She had a hit single in 1979 with Kinders van die Wind (Children of the Wind), written by the late Koos Du Plessis.
