Und steht Ihr früh am Morgen auf vom...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Und steht Ihr früh am Morgen auf vom Bette,
Scheucht Ihr vom Himmel alle Wolken fort,
Die Sonne lockt Ihr auf die Berge dort,
Und Engelein erscheinen um die Wette
Und bringen Schuh und Kleider Euch sofort.
Dann, wenn Ihr ausgeht in die heil'ge Mette,
So zieht Ihr alle Menschen mit Euch fort,
Und wenn Ihr naht der benedeiten Stätte,
So zündet Euer Blick die Lampen an.
Weihwasser nehmt Ihr, macht des Kreuzes Zeichen
Und netzet Eure weiße Stirn sodann
Und neiget Euch und beugt die Knie ingleichen -
O wie holdselig steht Euch alles an!
Wie hold und selig hat Euch Gott begabt,
Die Ihr der Schönheit Kron empfangen habt!
Wie hold und selig wandelt Ihr im Leben;
Der Schönheit Palme ward an Euch gegeben.

And when you rise early from your bed

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

And when you rise early from your bed,
You banish every cloud form the sky,
You lure the sun onto those  hills,
And angels compete to
Bring your shoes and  clothes.
Then, when you go out to Holy Mass,
You draw everyone along with you,
And when you near the blessed place,
Your gaze lights up the lamps.
You take holy water, make the sign of the cross
And moisten your white brow,
And you bow and bend the knee -
Oh, how beautifully it all becomes you!
How sweetly, blessedly has God endowed you,
Who have received the crown of beauty.
How sweetly, blessedly you walk through life;
The palm of beauty was bestowed on you.
