Weil' auf mir, du dunkles Auge

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weil' auf mir, du dunkles Auge,
Übe deine ganze Macht,
Ernste, milde [träumerische]1,
Unergründlich süße Nacht.
Nimm mit deinem Zauberdunkel
Diese Welt von hinnen mir,
Daß du über meinem Leben
Einsam schwebest für und für.

Stay with me, endarkened vision

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Stay with me, endarkened vision,
exercise your fullest might,
solemn, gentle, dream-abundant,
bottomlessly precious night.
Let your somber magic's cover
shield me from this earthly shore,
high above my life to hover:
lone for ever, evermore.
