Muß ich in der Wüste hausen

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Muß ich in der Wüste hausen,
 In der Wildniß, in der grausen,
 Wo nur Sand und Sonne glühen,
 Lieblich wird es in mir blühen!
 Denn, ich trage in der Brust
 Liebchens Bild und Frühlings Lust!

 Ob die Nacht mit ihren Schauern,
 Ob Gefahren mich umlauern,
 Ob sie dräuen, ob sie wüten,
 Wird ein Engel mich behüten!
 Denn, ich trage in der Brust
 Liebchens Bild und Frühlings Lust!

Must I live in the desert

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Must I live in the desert,
In the dreadful wilderness,
Where only sand and sun smolder,
It shall bloom beautifully within me!
For I carry in my breast
The image of my beloved and the rapture of spring!

If night with its terrors,
If dangers loom about me,
If they threaten, if they rage,
An angel shall protect me!
For I carry in my breast
The image of my beloved and the rapture of spring!
