Mag da draußen Schnee sich türmen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE ITA
Mag da draußen Schnee sich türmen,
Mag es hageln, mag es stürmen,
Klirrend [an mein Fenster]1 schlagen,
Nimmer will ich mich beklagen!
Denn ich trage in der Brust
Liebchens Bild und Frühlingslust.

Let the flash split heav'n asunder
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Let the flash split heav'n asunder,
Let the snow fall, let it thunder,
Sharply 'gainst my casement hailing;
Never hear ye me bewailing,
Since I carry in my breast,
Love's eternal Spring of rest.
