O schaudre nicht! Laß diesen Blick

Language: German (Deutsch)

O schaudre nicht! Laß diesen Blick,
Laß diesen Händedruck dir sagen,
Was unaussprechlich ist:
Sich hinzugeben ganz und eine Wonne
Zu fühlen, die ewig sein muß!
Ewig! -- Ihr Ende [würde]1 Verzweiflung sein.
Nein! kein Ende.  Kein Ende!

Oh do not shudder! Let this gaze

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Oh do not shudder! Let this gaze,
Let the pressure of these hands tell you
That which is impossible to articulate:
To abandon oneself utterly and to feel
A bliss that must be eternal!
Eternal! Its end [would]1 be despair.
No! no end. No end!
