Liebe Sonne, scheine wieder,
Schein' die düstern Wolken nieder!
Komm mit deinem goldnen Strahl
Wieder über Berg und Thal!

Trockne ab auf allen Wegen
Ueberall den alten Regen!
Liebe Sonne, laß dich sehn,
Daß wir können spielen gehn!

Dear sun, shine again
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Dear sun, shine again,
Shine to subdue the dismal clouds!
With your golden beams come again
Over mountain and valley!
On all the roadways everywhere
Dry off the old rain!
Dear sun, let yourself be seen,
So that we can go out to play!
