Komm, wir wandeln zusammen im Mondschein
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Komm, wir wandeln zusammen im Mondschein,
So zaubrisch glänzt jedes Blatt,
Vielleicht steht auf einem geschrieben,
Wie lieb mein Herz dich hat.

Komm, wir wandeln zusammen im Mondschein,
Der Mond strahlt aus Wellen bewegt,
Vielleicht, daß du ahnest, wie selig
Mein Herz dein Bildnis hegt.

Komm, wir wandeln zusammen im Mondschein,
Der Mond will ein königlich Kleid
Aus goldenen Strahlen dir weben,
Daß du wandelst in Herrlichkeit.

Come, we'll wander together in the moonlight
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Come, we'll wander together in the moonlight;
 so magically does each leaf gleam,
 perhaps on one it is written
 how fondly my heart adores you.
 
 Come, we'll wander together in the moonlight;
 the moon reflects distortedly from the waves -
 perhaps you will sense how blissfully
 my heart cherishes your image.
 
 Come, we'll wander together in the moonlight;
 the moon will weave a queenly robe
 for you from golden beams of light,
 so that you may walk in magnificence.
