Aus der Erde quellen Blumen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Aus der Erde quellen Blumen,
Aus der Sonne quillt das Licht,
Aus dem Herzen quillt die Liebe,
Und der Schmerz, der es zerbricht.

Und die Blumen müssen welken,
Und dem Lichte folgt die Nacht,
Und der Liebe folgt das Sehnen,
Das das Herz so düster macht.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA

Sounds

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

  Flowers spring from the earth,
 light spills from the sun;
 love flows from the heart,
 and so does pain, which breaks it.
 
 And the flowers must wilt,
 and night follow day;
 and yearning follows the love
 that makes the heart so gloomy.
