Kein Schlaf noch kühlt das Auge mir
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE FRE ITA SPA
Kein Schlaf noch kühlt das Auge mir,
Dort gehet schon der Tag herfür
An meinem Kammerfenster.
Es wühlet mein verstörter Sinn
Noch zwischen Zweifeln her und hin
Und schaffet Nachtgespenster.
-- Ängste, quäle
Dich nicht länger, meine Seele!
Freu' dich! Schon sind da und dorten
Morgenglocken wach geworden.

In the early hours
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 No sleep yet cools my eyes;
 day is already beginning
 outside my chamber window.
 My troubled senses rummage still
 here and there among my doubts,
 creating nightly visions.
 Frighten and torment yourself
 no longer, my soul!
 Be happy! Already, here and there,
 morning bells are awakening.
