Halt!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Eine Mühle seh ich [blicken]1
Aus den Erlen heraus,
Durch Rauschen und Singen
Bricht Rädergebraus.

Ei willkommen, ei willkommen,
Süßer Mühlengesang!
Und das Haus, wie so traulich!
Und die Fenster, wie blank!

Und die Sonne, wie helle
Vom Himmel sie scheint!
Ei, Bächlein, liebes Bächlein,
War es also gemeint?

Halt!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 I see a mill looking
 Out from the alders;
 Through the roaring and singing
 Bursts the clatter of wheels.

 Hey, welcome, welcome!
 Sweet mill-song!
 And the house, so comfortable!
 And the windows, how clean!

 And the sun, how brightly
 it shines from Heaven!
 Hey, brooklet, dear brook,
 Was this, then, what you meant?
