"Let the Ship Come In" is the first single by Faroese singer/songwriter Edith Dahl Jakobsen. The song is inspired by the painting Várdagur- skip fara (1937-1938) by the well-known Faroese painter Sámal Joensen-Mikines. Várdagur embodies feelings of emptiness, melancholy and desolation resulting from being left behind when men go to sea. Fine, symmetric lines with simple colours enhance a sorrowful woman, and this expression is incorporated in the lyrics and melodic movement of the song.
