Die Welt ist so schön und der Himmel so...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Welt ist so schön und der Himmel so blau,
Und die Lüfte die wehen so lind und so lau,
Und die Blumen winken auf blühender Au,
Und funkeln und glitzern im Morgentau,
Und die Menschen jubeln, wohin ich schau, --
Und doch möcht ich im Grabe liegen,
Und mich an mein totes Liebchen schmiegen.

The earth is so fair and the heavens so...

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The earth is so fair and the heavens so blue,
And the breeze is breathing so warmly too;
And the flowers of the meadows are gleaming through
The sparkling and glittering morning dew;
And the people are joyous wherever I view.
Yet were I in my grave at rest
And folded close to my lost love's breast.
