Du, trüber Nebel, hüllest mir

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du, trüber Nebel, hüllest mir
Das Tal mit seinem Fluß,
Den Berg mit seinem Waldrevier,
Und jedem Sonnengruß.

Nimm fort in deine graue Nacht
Die Erde weit und breit!
Nimm fort, was mich so traurig macht,
Auch die Vergangenheit.

You dreary fog, you shroud for me

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

You dreary fog, you shroud for me
The valley with its river,
The mountain with its forest range
And every greeting of the sun.
Take away into your grey night
The earth, far and wide!
Take away that which makes me so sad,
The past as well.
