Himmel strahlt so helle und klar,
Heller strahlt mir dein Augenpaar.
Du meine Rose, mir ins Auge blick,
Daß ich dich segne in meinem Glück.

Vögleins Lied so lieblich erklingt,
Süß'res Lied mir mein Liebchen singt.
Du meine Rose, mir ins Auge blick,
Daß ich dich segne in meinem Glück.

Sonne küßt das ganze Erdenrund,
Heißer küßt mich dein Rosenmund.
Du meine Rose, mir ins Auge blick,
Daß ich dich segne in meinem Glück.

The sky is beaming, so bright and clear
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 The sky is beaming, so bright and clear;
 even more brightly do your eyes beam at me.
 You, my rose, gaze into my eyes,
 so that I bless you in my happiness.
 
 The little bird's song resounds with such loveliness, 
 yet my darling sings a much sweeter song.
 You, my rose, gaze into my eyes,
 so that I bless you in my happiness.
 
 The sun kisses the entire world,
 yet your rosy lips kiss me even more warmly.
 You, my rose, gaze into my eyes,
 so that I bless you in my happiness.
