I've heard an organ talk sometimes

Language: English

I've heard an organ talk sometimes
In a cathedral aisle
And understood no word it said
Yet held my breath the while...

And risen up and gone away,
A more Bernardine girl
And know not what was done to me
In that old hallowed aisle.

Manchmal hört’ ich im Kirchenschiff

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Manchmal hört’ ich im Kirchenschiff
der Orgel Lobgesang.
Obwohl ich keinen Ton verstand,
hielt ich den Atem an…

Dann stand ich auf und ging hinaus
und war ein frömm’res Kind -
und weiß nicht, was mit mir geschah
im heil’gen Kirchenschiff.
