Von allen Bergen nieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Von allen Bergen nieder
So fröhlich Grüßen schallt -
Das ist der Frühling wieder,
Der ruft zum grünen Wald!

Ein Liedchen ist erklungen
Herauf zum stillen Schloß -
Dein Liebster hat's gesungen
Der hebt Dich auf sein Roß.

Wir reiten so geschwinde,
Von allen Menschen weit. -
Da rauscht die Luft so linde
In Waldeseinsamkeit.

Wohin? Im Mondenschimmer
So bleich der Wald schon steht. -
Leis rauscht die Nacht - frag' nimmer,
Wo Lieb' zu Ende geht!

The bridegroom

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Down from all the mountaintops
Sound such happy greetings -
It is the return of spring
That calls to the green forest! 

A little song rang out
Up to the quiet castle -
Your beloved has sung it,
And he lifts you upon his steed. 

We ride so swiftly
Far away from all the people. -
The air rustles so gently
In the solitude of the forest. 

To where?  In the moonlight
The forest is already pale. -
The night murmurs softly - do not ask
Where love goes to its end!
