Sinke, liebe Sonne, sinke!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sinke, liebe Sonne, sinke!
Ende deinen trüben Lauf,
Und an deine Stelle winke
Bald den Mond herauf.

Herrlich und schöner dringe
Aber Morgen dann herfür,
Liebe Sonn'! und mit dir bringe
Meinen Lieben mir.

To the sun

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Sink, dear sun, sink!
End your cloudy run,
and beckon to the moon
quickly to take your place.

But, magnificently and more beautifully,
rise again tomorrow,
dear sun! and bring with you
my sweetheart back to me.
