Beglückt, wer an des Treuen Brust

Language: German (Deutsch)

Beglückt, wer an [des]1 Treuen Brust,
   In voller Liebe ruht,
Kein Kummer naht und stört die Lust,
   Nur heller brennt die Glut.
Kein Wechsel, kein Wanken,
   Zum ruhigen Glück
Fliehn alle Gedanken
   Der Ferne zurück.
Und lieber und bänger
   Drückt Mund sich an Mund,
So inn'ger, so länger:
   Von Stunde zu Stund.
Beschränkter und enger
   Der liebliche Bund.

Delighted she, who upon the breast of the faithful one

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Delighted [she]1, who upon the breast of the faithful one
   Rests in utter love,
No sorrow nears and disturbs the joy,
   The blaze only burns more brightly.
No change, no wavering,
   To peaceful happiness
Fly back all thoughts
   From distant places.
And more dearly and anxiously
   Lips press against lips,
The longer, the more heartfelt:
   From hour to hour.
More intense and closer
   The lovely union.
