Blaues Sternlein, du sollst schweigen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Blaues Sternlein, du sollst schweigen,
Das Geheimnis gib nicht kund.
Sollst nicht allen Leuten zeigen
Unsern stillen [Liebesbund]1.

Mögen andre stehn in Schmerzen,
Jeder sage, was er will;
Sind zufrieden unsre Herzen,
Sind wir beide gerne still.

Blue little star

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Blue little star, be silent -
 do not reveal the secret.
 Do not show everyone
 the silent bond between our hearts.
 
 Others may stand their sorrows -
 let them say what they will;
 Our hearts are satisfied,
 and we happily keep silent.
