O komm zu mir, wenn leiser Sang
An’s Herz dir zitternd schlägt
Und Stern und Blumen dir nicken zu
Von Sehnsucht süss und bang bewegt.
O folge mir nach ros'gen Höh'n
Wo strahlend erglüht als der Sonne Pracht
Dem Erdendunkel schnell entflohn,
O lächle uns dort der Liebe Lohn.

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)
Oh come to me, when quiet song
Tremblingly beats at your heart
And stars and flowers nod to you,
Sweetly and anxiously moved by yearning.
Oh follow me to rosy heights,
Where the sun’s glory glows radiantly,
Quickly escaped from earthly darkness,
Oh may the rewards of love smile upon us there.
