Rote Abendwolken ziehn am Firmament,
Sehnsuchtsvoll nach dir,

Himmel strahlt in glühnder Pracht,
Und ich träum bei Tag und Nacht
Nur allein von dem süßen Liebchen mein.

Rosy evening clouds hang in the firmament
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Rosy evening clouds hang in the firmament,
Longing-filled for thee, 
my love, my heart is rent;
Heaven glows with splendrous light
And I dream by day and night
But of thee, of the sweetheart dear to me.
