Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
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.

Le ciel rayonne si vif et si clair
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Le ciel rayonne si vif et si clair,
Plus vifs brillent pour moi tes yeux.
Toi ma rose, regarde-moi dans les yeux,
Que je te bénisse dans mon bonheur.

Le chant du petit oiseau retentit, si charmant,
Un chant plus doux me chante Ma bien-aimée.
Toi ma rose, regarde-moi dans les yeux,
Que je te bénisse dans mon bonheur.

Le soleil embrasse la terre entière,
Plus ardent est pour moi le baiser de ta bouche de rose.
Toi ma rose, regarde-moi dans les yeux,
Que je te bénisse dans mon bonheur.
