Du bist gemacht zu wandern

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du bist gemacht zu wandern,
Und ich gemacht zu ruhn.
Du gehest nun zu andern.
Was soll ich Arme thun?
Ich kann von dir nur träumen ;
O kehr aus fernen Räumen
So schön mir, wie du scheidest nun!

You were created to wander

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

You were created to wander,
And I was created to rest.
You now go off to others.
What should I poor wretch do?
I can only dream of you;
From distant regions, oh return
To me as handsome as you are as you depart!
