The hymn Mitt hjerte alltid vanker (My heart always lingers) is one of the most popular Scandinavian hymns. In this arrangement, elements from the yoik tradition have been included, as well as a Northern Sami translation of the first verse, and the last verse in Norwegian language. The original lyrics were written in Danish by Hans Adolph Brorson in 1732.

The yoik elements include the use of so-called yoik syllables (syllables with no meaning; pronunciation guide is included) as well as a yoik inspired melody in the opening bars. The yoik melody is then reused in several places. The piano part could be performed as written or more freely, using the chord symbols given as a guide. It is also possible to perform this arrangement a cappella.
