Frühlingslied

Language: German (Deutsch) after the French (Français)

Sieh', schon fliehet des Winters Nacht,
In dem Hain ist der Lenz erwacht,
In dem sprossenden Laube
Nistet die Turteltaube.
Liebchen, komm mit in's duft'ge Grün,
Wo die heimlichen Veilchen blüh'n,
Wo in lieblicher Lenzesnacht
Wonne der Liebe lacht.

Sieh', wie das silberne Mondenlicht
Still mit den flüsternden Blättern spricht,
Mit Paradieses Glanz umflicht
Dein Angesicht.
Liebchen komm mit in's duft'ge Grün,
Wo die heimlichen Veilchen blüh'n,
Wo in lieblicher Lenzesnacht
Wonne der Liebe lacht.

Sing' mir die traulichen Lieder,
Echo giebt leise sie wieder,
Und wie vom Himmel nieder
Tönt Sphärenklang.
Liebchen komm mit in's duft'ge Grün,
Wo die heimlichen Veilchen blüh'n,
Wo in lieblicher Lenzesnacht
Wonne der Liebe lacht.

Spring song

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Lo, winter’s night is already fleeing,
Spring has awoken in the grove,
In the sprouting foliage,
The turtledove is nesting.
Darling, come along into the scented greenery
Where the secret violets bloom,
Where in the lovely spring night
The bliss of love laughs.

See how the silvery moonlight
Quietly converses with the whispering leaves,
How it weaves the radiance of paradise
Around your face.
Darling, come along into the scented greenery
Where the secret violets bloom,
Where in the lovely spring night
The bliss of love laughs.

Sing me the familiar songs,
Echo shall repeat them quietly,
And as if down from the heavens
Sounds the music of the spheres.
Darling, come along into the scented greenery
Where the secret violets bloom,
Where in the lovely spring night
The bliss of love laughs.
