Horch, der Wind klagt in den Zweigen traurig sacht;
süßes Lieb, wir müssen Scheiden: gute Nacht.
Ach wie gern in deinen Armen ruhte ich,
doch die Trennungsstunde naht, Gott schütze dich.

Dunkel ist die Nacht, kein Sternlein spendet Licht;
süßes Lieb vertrau auf Gott und weine nicht;
führt der liebe Gott mich einst zu dir zurück,
bleiben ewig wir vereint in Liebesglück.

Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Hark, the low wind laments sadly in the branches;
Sweet love, we must part: good night.
Oh, how happily I rested in your arms.
The hour of parting approaches, God protect you.

Dark is the night, no tiny star provides any light;
Sweet love, trust in God and do not weep;
If the loving God lead me back to you again,
We should remain united forever in the happiness of love.
