Es kommt der Wind mit Schall gezogen

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Es kommt der Wind mit Schall gezogen, 
Der Wind, in dessen lauen Wogen 
Die Kraft des Frühlings rauscht und rinnt;
Aus blauen Augen lacht der Morgen,
So fahrt dahin ihr Wintersorgen! 
  Es kommt der Wind, es kommt der Wind! 

  Nun wird es hell um Berg und Halde,
Nun grünt's im Thal, nun laubt's im Walde,
Durch Veilchen jauchzend springt der Quell;
Kein Busch, der nicht von Blüten prangte! 
Und wo ein Herz in Zweifeln bangte,
  Nun wird es hell, nun wird es hell! 

  Hast du mich lieb? Ich schwieg und harrte,
Da rings die Welt in Banden starrte, 
Und jeder Keim gefesselt blieb.
Doch nun sich Alles drängt zu Tage,
Nun halt' ich's nicht, nun sprich, nun sage:
  Hast du mich lieb? Hast du mich lieb?

The wind comes along with a roar

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 The wind comes along with a roar,
The wind, in whose warm waves
The power of spring rushes and flows;
The morning laughs from out its blue eyes,
So be gone, you winter sorrows!
 The wind comes along, the wind comes along!

 Now it is getting light about the mountain and hill,
Now the valley is becoming green, now the forest is becoming leafy,
Through violets the water spring leaps, rejoicing,
There is no bush that is not resplendent with blossoms!

 Now it is getting light, now it is getting light!

 Do you love me? I fell silent and waited,
Since the world all about was frozen in chains,
And every sprouting seed remained bound.
But now that everything is surging toward the daylight,
Now I cannot stand it, now speak, now tell me:
 Do you love me? Do you love me?
