Geh' nicht, die Gott für mich erschuf!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Geh' nicht, die Gott für mich erschuf!
Laß scharren deiner Rosse Huf
Den Reiseruf!

Du willst von meinem Herde fliehn?
Und weißt ja nicht, wohin, wohin
Dich deine Rosse ziehn!

Die Stunde rinnt! Das Leben jagt!
Wir haben uns noch nichts gesagt
Bleib bis es tagt!

Du darfst aus meinen Armen fliehn?
Und weißt ja nicht, wohin, wohin
Dich deine Rosse ziehn...

Do not go, you whom God created for me!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Do not go, you whom God created for me!
Let the hooves of your horses scratch the ground 
At the call to journey!

You would flee my hearth?
Not even knowing where, oh where
Your horses will take you!

The hours are flying! Life is dashing past!
We have said nothing yet to each other --
Stay, until dawn!

You must flee from my arms?
Not even knowing where, oh where
Your horses will take you...
