Die Gletscher leuchten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Gletscher leuchten 
Im Mondenlicht, 
Und Thränen feuchten 
Mein Angesicht.
Die Stürme sausen,
Die Möven schrein,
Die Wogen brausen,
Ich denke dein!

Das Land entschwindet 
Schon fern dem Blick,
Doch zu dir findet 
Mein Herz zurück;
Ich will ihm Schwingen
Des Liedes leihn,
Es soll dir singen: 
Ich denke dein!

The glaciers shine

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The glaciers shine
In the moonlight
And tears wet
My face.
The storms bluster,
The sea-gulls cry,
The waves roar;
I think of you!

The land vanishes,
Already far from view,
But my heart finds
Its way back to you.
I will endow it
with the wings of Song;
It shall sing to you:
I think of you!
