Sternchen mit dem trüben Schein

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Czech (Čeština)

Sternchen mit dem trüben Schein,
Könntest du doch weinen!
Hättest du ein Herzelein,
O, du gold'nes Sternlein mein,
Möchtest Funken weinen.

Weintest mit mir, weintest laut
Nächte durch voll Leiden,
Daß sie mich vom Liebsten traut,
Um das Gold der reichen Braut
Mich vom Liebsten scheiden.

Little star with the gloomy light

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Little star with the gloomy light,
could you only weep!
If you had a little heart,
O, my little golden star,
you would weep sparks.

You would weep with me, weep loudly
through the nights full of sorrow,
that they are, 
for the rich bride's gold,
separating me from my darling sweetheart.
