Er (Im Garten)
 Deine Stimme laß ertönen,
 Hohe Fürstin meiner Liebe,
 Deine Blicke laß mir leuchten,
 Blühend Licht der Sternennacht!

 Sang mir nicht der Kranz der Blumen:
 "Heut' auch will ich dich beglücken -- ?"
 Nieder sende deine Strahlen,
 Blühend Licht der Sternennacht!

 Einsam harr' ich deinen Schritten,
 Schweigend lausch' ich deinen Tönen;
 Deine Blicke laß mir leuchten,
 Blühend Licht der Sternennacht!

Let your voice ring out
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
He (In the garden)
Let your voice ring out,
Noble princess of my love,
Let your eyes shine on me,
Radiant light of the starry night!

Did not your wreath of flowers sing to me:
"This very day I will make you happy – ?"
Send down your rays,
Radiant light of the starry night!

All alone I await your footsteps,
Silently I listen for your tones;
Let your eyes shine on me,
Radiant light of the starry night!
