Der goldene Morgen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Golden lacht und glüht der Morgen
Über maiengrünen Höh'n,
Und [du, Seele, sinnst]1 voll Sorgen,
Und die Welt ist doch so schön!
Vöglein singen, Glocken schlagen,
[Blütenlicht durchflammt]2 das Land.
Wirf dein [Zagen und dein Klagen]3
[Herz]4, in diesen Freudenbrand!

Translation(s): ENG FRE ITA

Plein d'or, le matin sourit et brille

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Plein d'or, le matin sourit et brille
Sur les hauteurs dans la verdure du mois de mai,
Et toi, mon âme se brise pleine de chagrin,
Et le monde est pourtant si beau !
Des petits oiseaux chantent, des cloches sonnent,
La terre s'enflamme de la lumière des fleurs,
Jette au loin ton découragement et tes lamentations,
Cœur, dans ces feux de joie !
