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 snow without be piled
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Let the snow without be piled,
Let the howling storm rage wild,
Beating o'er the window-pane, --
I will never more complain,
For within my heart bide warm
Spring-tide joy and sweetheart's form.
