Dereinst, dereinst,
[Gedanke]1 mein,
Wirst ruhig sein.

Läßt Liebesglut
Dich still nicht werden,
In kühler Erden,
Da schläfst du gut,
[Dort ohne Lieb']2
und ohne Pein
Wirst ruhig sein.

Was du im Leben
Nicht hast gefunden,
Wenn es entschwunden,
[Wird's dir]3 gegeben,
Dann ohne Wunden
[Und ohne Pein]2
Wirst ruhig sein.

One day, o my mind
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
One day, one day, 
O my mind,
You will be at peace.

Love's ardour 
will not leave you alone,
In the cool earth, 
There you sleep well

and without suffering;
You will be at peace:

What you have not 
found in life,
When it has vanished,
Will be given to you;
Then without wounds
and without pain
you will be at peace.
