Noch hallt nur aus der Ferne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Noch hallt nur aus der Ferne
Ein frisches Liedchen von mir.
Der Vater eilt zu dem Kinde,
Der Geliebte, mein Feinlieb, zu dir.

Er küßt dich auf die Stirne,
Er küßt dich auf den Mund,
Nun sie zu dir ihn tragen,
Sind ihm die Füße nicht wund.

Now only from the distance sounds

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Only from the distance still sounds
A brisk little song of mine.
The father is hurrying to his child,
The beloved, my dear one, to you.

He will kiss you upon your brow,
He will kiss you upon your lips,
Now that they are carrying him to you,
His feet are no longer sore.
