Translation Singable translation by Francis L. Soper

May Song
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Bliss is floating, bliss is floating,
Smiling ev'rywhere;
Floating round the verdant mountain,
Smiling in the glassy fountain,
Bliss is floating,
Smiling, smiling ev'rywhere.

Love is reigning, love is reigning,
Ruling ev'rywhere;
Through the breezy thicket gliding,
In the snowy blossoms hiding,
Love is reigning,
Ruling, ruling ev'rywhere.

Joy is singing, joy is singing,
Shouting far and near;
O'er the flow'ry meadows straying,
Lambs are skipping, children playing,
Joy is singing,
Shouting, shouting far and near.
