Es tönt ein voller Harfenklang

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es [tönt]1 ein voller Harfenklang
Den Lieb' und Sehnsucht schwellen,
Er dringt zum Herzen tief und bang
Und läßt das Auge quellen. 

O rinnet, Tränen, nur herab,
O schlage Herz, mit Beben!
Es sanken Lieb' und Glück ins Grab,
Verloren ist [mein]2 Leben!

The full sound of harps rings out

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 The full sound of harps rings out,
 swelling one with love and yearning;
 it pierces one to the heart, deeply and anxiously,
 and leaves the eyes streaming.
 
 O run, my tears, stream down;
 o pound, my heart, and quiver!
 Love and Happiness are buried in the grave;
 lost is my life!
