[Hör]1 es klagt die Flöte wieder
Und die kühlen [Brunnen]2 rauschen,
Golden wehn die Töne nieder,
Stille, [stille]3, laß uns lauschen!

Holdes Bitten, mild Verlangen,
[Wie es süß zum Herzen spricht]4!
Durch die Nacht die mich umfangen,
Blickt zu mir der Töne Licht.

Evening serenade
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Hark, the flute laments again
and the cool springs murmur;
golden, the sounds waft down -
be still, be still, let us listen.

Lovely supplication, gentle longing,
how sweetly it speaks to the heart!
Through the night that enfolds me
shines the light of the music.
