In Liebeslust, in Sehnsuchtsqual

Language: German (Deutsch)

In Liebeslust, in Sehnsuchtsqual,
  O höre mich!
Eins sing' ich nur viel tausendmal
  Und nur für dich!

Ich sing' es laut durch Wald und Feld,
  O höre mich!
Ich sing' es durch die ganze Welt:
  Ich liebe dich!

Und träumend noch in stiller Nacht
  Muß singen ich,
Ich singe, wenn mein Aug' erwacht:
  Ich liebe dich!

Und wenn mein [Aug']1 im Tode bricht,
  O sähst du mich!
Du sähst, daß noch [dies]2 Auge spricht:
  Ich liebe dich!

In love's delight

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In love's delight, in yearning pain
  O hear thou me!
One song I sing, and sing again;
  'Tis all for thee.

I sing it loud thro' wood and field,
  O hear thou me!
To all my secret is reveal'd:
  I love but thee!

In dreams I sing it thro' the night,
  But silently!
And still I sing when day is bright,
  I love but thee!

And if my heart were hush'd in death,
  I'd say to thee,
In fading eye, with failing breath.
  I love but thee!


From the Liszt score.
