Cidli, du weinest, und ich schlummre...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Cidli, du weinest, und ich schlummre sicher,
Wo im Sande der Weg verzogen fortschleicht;
Auch wenn stille Nacht ihn umschattend decket,
Schlummr' ich ihn sicher.

Wo er sich endet, wo ein Strom das Meer wird,
Gleit' ich über den Strom, der sanfter aufschwillt;
Denn, der mich begleitet, der Gott gebots ihm!
Weine nicht, Cidli.


Translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE

Cidli, you are weeping, and I am sound...

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Cidli, you are weeping, and I am sound asleep,
Where the path winds forward in the sand;
Even when the silent night shrouds the path in shadows,
I remain deeply asleep.

Where it ends, where a river becomes the sea,
I will glide over the river that swells so smoothly;
For it is my companion, as God has commanded.
Do not weep, Cidli!
