Entflieh mit mir und sei mein Weib

Language: German (Deutsch)

Entflieh mit mir und sei mein Weib,
Und ruh' an meinem Herzen aus;
[Fern in der Fremde]1 sei mein Herz
Dein Vaterland und Vaterhaus.

[Gehst du nicht mit, so sterb ich hier]2
Und du bist einsam und allein;
Und bleibst du auch im Vaterhaus,
Wirst doch wie in der Fremde sein.


Translation(s): DUT DUT ENG ENG FRE FRE ITA SWE

O flee with me and be my wife

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

"O flee with me and be my wife,
And dwell for evermore with me,
In distant lands my heart shall still
Be home and shelter, love, to thee!

Wilt thou not come then I shall die,
And leave thee lone for evermore,
And though at home thou yet mayst dwell,
It will be home to thee no more."
