"Kom sol, kom regn" ("Come sun, come rain") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1962, performed in Norwegian by Inger Jacobsen.

The song is in the chanson style, popular in the early years of the Contest. Jacobsen sings about her feelings regarding her lover, telling him that "come sun, come rain" she will always have happiness by being with him.

The song was performed tenth on the night, following France's Isabelle Aubret with "Un premier amour" and preceding Switzerland's Jean Philippe with "Le retour". At the close of voting, it had received 2 points, placing 10th in a field of 16. The unusually high place for a comparatively small number of points is because at this Contest, four entries failed to record a point.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1963 Contest by Anita Thallaug with "Solvherv".
