Grüß euch aus Herzensgrund

Language: German (Deutsch)

Grüß euch aus Herzensgrund:
zwei Augen hell und rein,
zwei Röslein auf dem Mund,
Kleid blank aus Sonnenschein!

Nachtigall klagt und weint,
wollüstig rauscht der Hain,
alles die Liebste meint:
wo weilt sie so allein?

Weil's draußen finster war,
sah ich viel hellern Schein,
jetzt ist es licht und klar,
ich muß im Dunkeln sein.

Sonne nicht steigen mag,
sieht so verschlafen drein,
wünschet den ganzen Tag,
daß wieder Nacht möcht' sein.

Liebe geht durch die Luft,
holt fern die Liebste ein;
fort über Berg und Kluft!
und sie wird doch noch mein!

Expectation

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

I salute you from the bottom of my heart:
two eyes, bright and pure,
two little roses on your mouth,
your gown as lustrous as sunshine!

Nightingales fret and weep,
the grove rustles sensually,
and everything reminds me of my beloved:
where is she lingering so alone?

Even though it was dark outside
I saw much bright light;
now it is light and clear
but I must be in darkness.

The sun should not have risen,
for I only see it sleeping
as I wish the entire day
that it might be night again.

Love floats through the air,
to catch up with my beloved, far away;
go forth, beyond mountain and chasm!
and she shall yet again be mine!
