Im Rhein, im schönen Strome

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Im]1 Rhein, [im]1 [schönen]2 Strome,
Da spiegelt sich in den [Well'n]3
Mit seinem großen Dome
Das [große, heil'ge]4 Köln.

Im Dom da steht ein Bildnis,
Auf [goldnem Leder]5 gemalt;
In meines Lebens Wildnis
Hat's freundlich [hineingestrahlt]6.

Es schweben Blumen und Eng'lein
Um unsre liebe Frau;
Die Augen, die Lippen, die Wänglein,
Die gleichen der Liebsten genau.

In the Rhine, in the beautiful River

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In the Rhine, in the beautiful River,
The mighty shadow is thrown,
With its great Cathedral,
Of holy and great Cologne.

One picture in the Cathedral,
On gilded leather wrought,
Unto my life's wild sorrow
Hath gracious comfort wrought:

The dear Madonna, with floating
Angels and flowers above;
The eyes and the lips and the contour
Are all just those of my love.
