Im Korn, im Korn, im gelben Korn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Korn, im Korn, im gelben Korn
Blüht Mohn und blauer Rittersporn,
Die Halme im Wind sich wiegen.
Im Korn, im Korn, im gelben Korn
Ein Röslein fand ich ohne Dorn;
Die Ähren waren verschwiegen.

Im Korn, im Korn, im gelben Korn
Hat lichterloh geflammt ihr Zorn,
Dann ist die Flamme gesunken.
Im Korn, im Korn, im gelben Korn
Hab' ich aus einem süssen Born
Viel Seligkeit getrunken.

In the wheat

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In the wheat, in the wheat, in the yellow wheat
Poppies bloom and blue delphiniums,
The stalks sway back and forth in the wind.
In the wheat, in the wheat, in the yellow wheat
I found a little rose without thorns;
The wheat ears kept our secret.

In the wheat, in the wheat, in the yellow wheat
Her rage flamed blazingly,
Then the flames died down.
In the wheat, in the wheat, in the yellow wheat
I from a sweet spring
Drank much bliss.
