Über die Berge

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über die Berge
Zieht ihr fort;
Kommt an manchen
Grünen Ort,
Muß zurücke
Ganz allein;
Lebet wohl!
Es muß so seyn.
Scheiden,
Meiden,
Was man liebt,
[O]1 wie wird
Das Herz betrübt!
[Wald und Hügel,
Seenspiegel -]2
Schwinden all';
Hör' verschwimmen
Eurer Stimmen
Wiederhall.
[Scheiden,
Meiden,
Was man liebt,
O wie wird
Das Herz betrübt!]3

Confirmed with Gedichte von Johann Mayrhofer. Wien. Bey Friedrich Volke. 1824, pages 15-16.

Note: Schubert received Mayrhofer's texts generally in handwriting; the printed edition of Mayrhofer's poems appeared much later and presents the texts usually in a revised version.

1 Schubert: "Ach"
2 Schubert: "O Seenspiegel, / Wald und Hügel"
3 Schubert: "Lebt wohl! / Klingt klagevoll. / Ach wie wird / Das Herz betrübt! / Scheiden, / Meiden, / Was man liebt."

Farewell

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Go forth, over the mountains,
 and you will come upon many green spots.
 I must go back all alone,
 so be well! It must be so.

 Parting, leaving what one loves,
 alas, how it troubles the heart!
 O mirrored lakes, woods and hills - you all disappear;
 I hear the echo of your voices fading away.

 Be well! resounds our lament.
 Alas, how it troubles the heart
 to part and leave what one loves.
 Be well! resounds our lament.
