Herz, mein Herz, sei nicht beklommen

Available translation(s): ENG FRE ITA
Herz, mein Herz, sei nicht beklommen,
und ertrage dein Geschick,
neuer Frühling gibt zurück,
was der Winter dir genommen.

Und wie viel ist dir geblieben,
und wie schön ist noch die Welt!
Und, mein Herz, was dir gefällt,
alles, alles darfst du lieben!

Heart, my heart, oh be not shaken!
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Heart, my heart, oh be not shaken!
   Bravely bear thy fate. Once more
   Shall the coming Spring restore
What the Winter rude hath taken.

How abundant is thy measure!
   Still, O world, how fair thou art!
   And thou yet may'st love, my heart,
Everything that gives thee pleasure.
