Translation Singable translation by Virginia Woods, Mrs. John P. Morgan

Nun bist du worden mein eigen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Nun bist du worden mein eigen,
ich halte dich treu umfasst;
in meinem Herzen, da schweigen 
die Stürme, und Englein steigen
hernieder und halten Rast.

Nun sind in Treu' wir vereinet,
verstumme nun, Welt um uns her!
In deinen Augen, da scheinet
mir Himmel und Erde vereinet
wie Sonnenstrahlen im Meer!

Gehörst fürs ganze Leben
nun mir, und ich dir allein,
bis unsre Seelen heben
die Fittige einst und schweben
in den lichten Himmel hinein!

Now thou art mine, mine for ever
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Now thou art mine, mine for ever,
I hold thee in true embrace,
And from my heart now shall sever
All storm, and sweet angels ever
Descend and hold their place.

Now we are faithfully plighted,
All silent the world to us be,
By thy dear eyes ever lighted,
My heaven and earth are united
like sunlight over the sea!

Tro' life for ever clinging
To me, I to thee alone,
Until our souls shall winging
High over the fair earth swinging
To the light of heaven have flown!
