Sanct Hansaften-Spil (1803) by the Danish poet, Adam Oehlenschläger. According to the scholar Emil Gigas (1849-1931) the song was not written by Oehlenschläger himself but was rather taken from the repertoire of the persons singing it in the play, Jøderne under Træet (the jews under the tree). They were real persons in Copenhagen in Gerson's and Oehlenschläger's lifetime: Michel Levin (1740-1835) and Esther Simon (1761-1815). See "Nogle historiske »Antegnelser« til Oehlenschlægers St. Hansaften-Spil" in "Litteratur og historie, studier og essays", Copenhagen 1898, pp. 114-115.
