Bleib bei uns! Wir haben den [Tanzplan]1 im Tal 
bedeckt mit Mondesglanze, 
Johanneswürmchen erleuchten den Saal, 
die Heimchen spielen zum Tanze. 

Die Freude, das schöne [leichtgläubige]2 Kind, 
[es]3 wiegt sich in Abendwinden: 
Wo Silber [auf Zweigen und Büschen rinnt,
da wirst]4 du die Schönste finden.

Stay with us! We have covered a clearing in the dell
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Stay with us! We have covered a clearing in the dell
 with moonlight for the dance;
 fireflies illuminate the hall
 and crickets are playing dance-music.
 
 Joy, the fair, overcredulous child,
 is lulled by the evening winds;
 where silver runs on branch and bush
 you will find the fairest girl.
