In allen Fernen

Language: German (Deutsch)

In allen Fernen
Wölbt sich ein Haus,
[Ueb'rall aus]1 Sternen
Schau'n Englein [r'aus, ]2
[Wo nur]3 die Myrthe blüht,
Heimath ist nah,
[Wo nur]3 die Traube glüht,
Vaterhaus da! --
Auf [alle Hügel]4 
Giesst sich die Flut,
[Vöglein]5 schwingt Flügel]6 
Ueberall gut;
Ueber den Fernen fort
Wölbt sich ein Haus,
Aus allen Sternen dort
Schau'n Englein 'raus. --

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In all the far distances,
Arches a house,
[Everywhere from the stars]1
Angels peek out,
[Wherever]2 the myrtle blooms,
Home is near!
[Wherever]2 the grape glows,
Is my paternal house! --
[Upon]3 all the hilltops,
The waters pour down,
[Little]4 birds spread their wings
Everywhere easily!
Above the far distances,
A house ever arches,
From every star there
Angels peek out!
