  Und morgen wird die Sonne wieder scheinen,
Und auf dem Wege, den ich gehen werde,
  Wird uns, die Glücklichen, sie wieder einen
Inmitten dieser [sonne-athmenden]1 Erde . . .

  Und zu dem Strand, dem weiten, wogenblauen,
Werden wir still und langsam niedersteigen,
  Stumm werden wir uns in die Augen schauen,
Und auf uns sinkt des Glückes stummes Schweigen . . .

And tomorrow the sun will shine again
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
And tomorrow the sun will shine again,
and on the path I will take,
it will unite us again, we happy ones,
upon this sun-breathing earth...

And to the shore, the wide shore with blue waves,
we will descend quietly and slowly;
we will look mutely into each other's eyes
and the silence of happiness will settle upon us.
