"En Etsi Valtaa, Loistoa" as written by and Jean Sibelius Ilkka Kuusisto....
En etsi valtaa, loistoa, en kaipaa kultaakaan;
Mä pyydän taivaan valoa ja rauhaa päälle maan!
Se joulu suo, mi onnen tuo ja mielet nostaa Luojan luo!
Ei valtaa eikä kultaakaan, vaan rauhaa päälle maan!

Suo mulle maja rauhaisa ja lasten joulupuu!
Jumalan sanan valoa, joss' sieluin kirkastuu!
Tuo kotihin, jos pieneenkin, nyt joulujuhla suloisin!
Jumala sanan valoa, ja mieltä jaloa!

Luo köyhän niinkuin rikkahan saa joulu ihana!
Pimeytehen maailman tuo taivaan valoa!
Sua halajan, Sua odotan, Sä Herra maan ja taivahan!
Nyt köyhän niinkuin rikkaan luo suloinen joulus tuo!

    Song MeaningI'm not 100% Sure but I think this is quite close. It's a free translation.

    I seek no gold or majesty, no pearl or shining gem,
    but Lord above, I pray to Thee for peace on earth to men.
    O Lord divine, my heart is Thine! Oh, let my thoughts to Thee incline!
    I seek no pearl or shining gem but peace on earth to men.

    Among the children, in our home, give blessed harmony.
    The light that on the shepherds shone, oh, let it shine on me!
    O Word of light, O truth and might, oh, shed thy blessing glad and bright.
    O Word of grace and pardon free: give peace and harmony.

    Let Christmas come to rich and poor, its brilliant light unfold
    and with the wealth of God allure to heaven's streets of gold.
    I long for Thee, I wait for Thee, O Lord, I need Thy charity!
    May rich and poor alike abide in peace at Christmastide.
