Du bist vom Schlaf erstanden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du bist vom Schlaf erstanden
Und wandelst durch die Au.
Da liegt ob allen Landen
Der Himmel wunderblau.

[So lang du ohne Sorgen
Geschlummert schmerzenlos]1,
Der Himmel bis zum Morgen
Viel Tränen niedergoß.

In stillen Nächten weinet
Oft mancher aus dem Schmerz,
Und morgens dann [ihr]2 meinet,
Stets fröhlich sei sein Herz.

Silent tears

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Thou wakest full of gladness
From slumbers sweet and blest,
Unconscious of the sadness
In many a weary breast.

In peace thou hast been sleeping
For thou hast never mourn'd,
The day of bitter weeping
Not yet for thee hath dawn'd.

How oft a night of sorrow
Succeeds the weary day,
Yet all think on the morrow
The pain hath pass'd away.
