Bei dir allein empfind' ich, daß ich...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bei dir allein empfind' ich, daß ich lebe,
Daß Jugendmut mich schwellt
Daß eine heit're Welt
Der Liebe mich durchbebe;
Mich freut mein Sein
Bei dir allein!

Bei dir allein weht mir die Luft so labend,
Dünkt mich die Flur so grün,
So mild des Lenzes Blüh'n,
So balsamreich der Abend,
So kühl der Hain,
Bei dir allein!

Bei dir allein verliert der Schmerz sein Herbes,
Gewinnt die Freud an Lust!
Du sicherst meine Brust
Des angestammten Erbes;
Ich fühl' mich mein
Bei dir allein!

With you alone

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 With you alone I feel that I am alive,
 that a spirit of youth swells within me,
 that a jovial world
 of love surges through me;
 I rejoice in my existence
 with you alone!
 
 With you alone does the breeze feel so refreshing,
 the meadow so green,
 the blooming Spring so balmy,
 the evening so richly fragrant,
 the grove so cool; 
 with you alone!
 
 With you alone, pain loses its bitterness
 and joy yields such pleasure!
 You safeguard the 
 ancient heritage of my heart;
 I feel I am myself
 with you alone!
