Available translation(s): ENG
Strahlender Mond, der am Himmelszelt thront,
Nachts zu dir steigen auf meine Lieder,
Strahlender Mond, der am Himmelszelt thront,
Tön', o töne dem Liebsten sie wieder!

Nimm meine Küsse, Trauter du;
Trag' sie dem fernen Liebsten zu,
Strahlender Mond, der am Himmelszelt thront,
Sei mein Bote du!

Sei mein Bote für süße Gedanken
Die im Herzen mir keimen und ranken
Und die ich nicht sagen ihm kann,
Ja all' mein Wünschen, mein Lieben, mein Schwanken
Ja nur dir, dir vertrau' ich sie an!

Radiant moon enthroned in the heavens
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Radiant moon enthroned in the heavens,
At night my songs soar up to you,
Radiant moon enthroned in the heavens;
Sing, oh sing them again to my beloved!

Take my kisses, my faithful friend,
Take them to my distant beloved,
Radiant moon enthroned in the heavens,
Be my messenger!

Be my messenger of sweet thoughts
That germinate and grow in my heart 
And that I cannot tell him;
Yes, all my wishes, my loves, my doubts
I entrust only to you!
