Sterne jubeln, das Meer, es leuchtet (Tove)

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Danish (Dansk)

 Sterne jubeln, das Meer, es leuchtet,
 preßt an die Küste sein pochendes Herz,
 Blätter, sie murmeln, es zittert ihr Tauschmuck,
 Seewind umfängt mich in mutigem Scherz,
 Wetterhahn singt, und die Turmzinnern nicken,
 Burschen stolzieren mit flammenden Blicken,
 wogende Brust voll üppigen Lebens
 fesseln die blühenden Dirnen vergebens,
 Rosen, sie mühn sich, zu spähn in die Ferne,
 Fackeln, sie lodern und leuchten so gerne,
 Wald erschließt seinen Bann zur Stell',
 horch, in der Stadt nun Hundegebel!
 Und die steigenden Wogen der Treppe 
 Tragen zum Hafen den fürstlichen Held,
 bis er auf alleroberster Staffel
 mir in die offenen Arme fällt.

Stars jubilate, the sea, it glows

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Stars jubilate, the sea, it glows, 
 presses to the coast its throbbing heart, 
 leaves, they whisper, their dewey jewels trembling,
 the sea breeze embraces me in brazen folly.
 The weathercock sings, and the battlements high bow,
 lads strut proudly with fiery gazes,
 swollen with pride, full of life
 to enthrall the blossoming maidens in vain,
 roses, they crane their neck, to gaze afar,
 torches, they burn and daringly glow,
 the forest, it takes its spell away;
 hark, in the town now dogs are barking!
 And the rising fleet of stairs to the haven
 lead up the noble hero,
 until, on the highest tread
 he falls into my open arms.
