Wie singt die Lerche schön

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie singt die Lerche schön
Im Tal und auf den Höh'n,
Wenn der Morgen graut,
Und die Blümlein 
  Frischbetaut,
Harren auf den Sonnenschein!

So sing, mein Herz, nun auch
Beim frischen Morgenhauch.
Hast du auch gewacht
Unter Gram und Pein
  Diese Nacht --
Dein auch harrt ein Sonnenschein.

How beautifully the lark sings

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

How beautifully the lark sings
In the valley and on the heights,
When the day dawns,
And the little flowers
  Freshly bedewed,
Await the sunshine!
 
So sing, my heart, you now as well
In the fresh morning breeze.
You, too, kept watch
In grief and pain
  This night --
For you too there will be sunshine.
