Das höchste Glück hat keine Lieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das höchste Glück hat keine Lieder,
Der tiefste Schmerz hat keinen Laut,
Sie spiegeln beide still sich wieder
Im Tropfen, der vom Auge thaut.

So einen sich in stummen Zähren
Das höchste Glück, das tiefste Leid,
Bis sie in Liebe sich verklären,
Anbetend in Gottseligkeit.

My song

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Our highest joy is voiceless ever,
Our deepest pain has ne'er a sound,
Our joy or sorrow speaketh never,
But silent tears fall to the ground.

Thus in our tears we see repeated
Our highest joy, our deepest pain,
Till, all the fullness of time completed,
In perfect love they meet again.


From the Blumenthal score.
