All mein' Gedanken, mein Herz und mein...

Language: German (Deutsch)

All mein' Gedanken, mein Herz und mein Sinn,
da, wo die Liebste ist, wandern sie hin.
Gehn ihres Weges trotz Mauer und Tor,
da hält kein Riegel, kein Graben nicht vor,
gehn wie die Vögelein hoch durch die Luft,
brauchen kein' Brücken über Wasser und Kluft,
finden das Städtlein und finden das Haus,
finden ihr Fenster aus allen heraus.
Und klopfen und rufen: Mach auf, laß uns ein,
wir kommen vom Liebsten und grüßen dich fein.

All my thoughts, my heart and my mind

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 All my thoughts, my heart and my mind,
 wander there, to where my sweetheart is.
 They follow their path despite wall and gate;
 they are held up by no bars and no ditches.
 They travel like the birds high in the sky,
 requiring no bridge over water and chasm;
 they find the town and find the house,
 find her window out of all the others.
 And they knock and call: Open, let us in!
 we come from your sweetheart and greet you kindly.
