Der Wandrer, von der Heimat weit

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Wandrer, von der Heimat weit,
Wenn rings die Gründe schweigen,
Der Schiffer in Meereseinsamkeit,
Wenn die Stern aus den Fluten steigen:

Die beiden schauern und lesen
In stiller Nacht,
Was sie nicht gedacht,
Da es noch fröhlicher Tag gewesen.

At the seaside

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The rambler, far away from home,
Surrounded by silent nature,
The lone sailor on the vast sea,
When the stars rise from the waves:

Both shiver and feel
In the silent night,
What didn't come to mind,
In the bonnie light of day.
