So hab' ich doch die ganze Woche

Language: German (Deutsch)

So hab' ich doch die ganze Woche
Mein feines Liebchen nicht geseh'n, 
Ich sah es an einem Sonntag
Wohl vor der Türe steh'n:
  Das tausendschöne Jungfräulein,
  Das tausendschöne Herzelein,
  Wollte Gott, wollte Gott, ich wär' heute bei ihr!

So will mir doch die ganze Woche
Das Lachen nicht vergeh'n, 
Ich sah es an einem Sonntag
 Wohl in die Kirche geh'n: 
  Das tausendschöne Jungfräulein,
  Das tausendschöne Herzelein,
  Wollte Gott, wollte Gott, ich wär' heute bei ihr!

Sunday

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Throughout this week I haven't seen her --
Beloved sweetness, my joy-
Though, a glimpse I had on Sunday, 
as she stood by her door --
Her thousandfold beauty 
and thousandfold her heart's warmth --
Would God, would God that I meet her again1.
 
All through the week I have been smiling,
as I remembered Sunday last --
When the church she was approaching 
with steps full of grace.  
Her thousandfold beauty and 
thousandfold her heart's warmth -- 
Would God, would God that I meet her again.
