Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE
Wir schreiten in goldener Fülle
Durch seliges Sommerland,
Fest liegen [unsere]1 Hände
Wie in einander gebannt.

Die große Sommersonne
Hat [unsere]2 Herzen erhellt,
Wir schreiten in goldener Fülle
Bis an das Ende der Welt.

Und bleicht deine sinkende Stirne, 
Und läßt meine Seele ihr Haus,
Wir schreiten in goldener Fülle
Auch in das Jenseits hinaus.

Wem solch ein Sommer beschieden,
[Der lacht der flüchtigen Zeit]3
Wir schreiten in goldener Fülle
Durch alle Ewigkeit.4

We walk in golden abundance
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
We walk in golden abundance
Through blissful summerland,
Our hands lie firmly clasped,
As if bound to one another.

The great summer sun
Has illuminated our hearts,
We walk in golden abundance
Until the end of the world

And if your lowering brow pales,
And if my soul leaves its home,
We will walk in golden abundance
In the next life as well.

To whomever such a summer is granted,
He laughs at the passage of time --
We walk in golden abundance
Throughout eternity.
