Translation Singable translation by Irenaus Dielsechristo Foulon (1849 - 1902)

Morgengruss
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Morgenwind so frisch und freudig
Zieht entgegen meinem Gang,
Trag' zum Liebchen meine Grüsse,
Bring ihr meines Liedes Klang!
Liebchen ruh'st wohl noch im Schlafe 
Schau'st im Traum vielleicht mein Bild,
Ob es fröhlich, ob es traurig,
Nur von Liebe sei's erfüllt.

Spreche dir von meiner Liebe 
Wie ich bin von Herzen dein,
Und verschwindend ruf dir's leise:
O Geliebte bleibe mein!
Morgenwind so frisch und freudig, 
Brause, brause deinen Gang,
Trag' zum Liebchen meine Grüsse,
Gruss und Kuss und Liedesklang.

Morning Zephyr, sprite or fairy
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Morning Zephyr, sprite or fairy,
Flying by on viewless wing,
To my love my greeting carry
And the song I fondly sing!
Thou art sleeping yet, my treasure; 
Does my image haunt thy dreams?
Dreams of sadness, dreams of pleasure, 
Love and I be still your themes!

May it tell thee how I love thee, 
How my heart and life are thine,
Whisp'ring as it floats above thee;
"Darling, be forever mine!"
Morning Zephyr, sprite or fairy,
Haste, Oh haste on viewless wing,
Love and kisses swiftly carry,
To the maid of whom I sing.
