Die helle Sonne leuchtet
Auf's weite Meer hernieder,
Und alle Wellen zittern
Von ihrem Glanze wieder.

Du spiegelst dich, wie die Sonne,
Im Meere meiner Lieder!
Sie alle glühn und zittern
Von deinem Glanze wieder!

The dazzling sun is glistening
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 The dazzling sun is glistening
 Down o'er the sea's deep yearning,
 And all the waves are trembling,
 Their answer thus returning.
 
 'Tis thou who shinest resplendent,
 Like sunshine, through my singing;
 My songs all glow and tremble,
 Thy glances rapture bringing.
