Der Mond ist aufgegangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Mond ist aufgegangen
und überstrahlt die Wellen;
ich halte mein Liebchen umfangen,
und unsre Herzen schwellen.

Im Arm des holden Kindes
ruh' ich allein am Strand;
was horchst du beim Rauschen des Windes?
Was zuckt deine weiße Hand?

"Das ist kein Rauschen des Windes,
das ist der Seejungfern Sang,
und meine Schwestern sind es,
die einst das Meer verschlang!"

Translation(s): ENG ENG FRE FRE FRE
