O schöne Nacht!

Language: German (Deutsch)

O schöne Nacht!
Am Himmel märchenhaft
Erglänzt der Mond in seiner ganzen Pracht;
Um ihn der kleinen Sterne liebliche
Genossenschaft.

Es schimmert hell der Tau
Am grünen Halm; mit Macht
Im Fliederbusche schlägt die Nachtigall;
Der Knabe schleicht zu seiner Liebsten sacht -
O schöne Nacht!


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

Ô belle nuit !

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Ô belle nuit !
Dans un ciel fabuleux
La lune brille dans toute sa splendeur ;
Avec autour d'elle la charmante compagnie
Des  petites étoiles.

La rosée argentée brille
Sur les vertes brindilles ; à tue-tête
Le rossignol chante dans le lilas ;
Avec précaution le garçon se glisse chez sa très chère ;
Ô belle nuit !
