Die [linden]1 Lüfte sind erwacht,
Sie säuseln und [weben]2 Tag und Nacht,
Sie [schaffen]3 an allen Enden.
O frischer Duft, o neuer Klang!
Nun, armes Herze, sey nicht bang!
Nun muß sich Alles, [Alles]4 wenden.

Die Welt wird schöner [mit]4 jedem Tag,
Man weiß nicht, was noch werden mag,
Das Blühen will nicht enden.
Es blüht das fernste, tieffste Thal.
Nun, armes Herz, vergiß der Qual!
Nun muß sich Alles, [Alles]4 wenden.

Balmy breezes are awakened
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Balmy breezes are awakened,
They whisper and move day and night,
And everywhere creative.
O fresh scent, o new sound!
Now, poor heart, don't be afraid.
Now all, all must change.

With each day the world grows fairer,
One cannot know what is still to come,
The flowering refuses to cease.
Even the deepest, most distant valley is in flower.
Now, poor heart, forget your torment.
Now all, all must change.
