 Relinquish, o heart, the hope of rescue
 as you venture out into the sea of love!
 For a thousand boats float
 wrecked about its shores!

2. Finstere Schatten der Nacht[sung text checked 1 time]
Finstere Schatten der Nacht,
Wogen- und Wirbelgefahr!
Sind wohl, die da gelind
rasten auf sicherem Lande,
euch zu begreifen im Stande?
Das ist der nur allein,
welcher auf wilder See
stürmischer Öde treibt,
Meilen entfernt vom Strande.

2. Dark shades of night
Dark shades of night,
dangers of waves and whirlpools!
Are those who rest there so mildly
on firm ground
capable of comprehending you?
No: only one who 
is tossed about on the wild sea's
stormy desolation,
miles from the shore.

Ist die Flur so voller Licht,

Ist die Welt so voller Lust,

14. Flaming eyes, dark hair
 Flaming eyes, dark hair,
 sweet and audacious boy,
 because of you my poor heart
 toils with sorrow!
 
 Can the sun's fire make ice,
 or turn day into night?
 Can the ardent breast of a man
 breathe without glowing desire?
 
 Is the field so full of light
 that the flowers stand in darkness?
 Is the world so full of joy
 that the heart is abandoned to torment?

15. Zum Schluß [sung text checked 1 time]
Nun, ihr Musen, genug! Vergebens strebt ihr zu schildern,
Wie sich Jammer und Glück wechseln in liebender Brust.
Heilen könnet die Wunden ihr nicht, die Amor geschlagen;
Aber Linderung kommt einzig, ihr Guten, von euch.

15.
Now, you Muses, enough! In vain you strive to describe
how misery and happiness alternate in a loving breast.
You cannot heal the wounds that Amor has caused,
but solace can come only from you, Kindly Ones.
