Das Meer erstrahlt im Sonnenschein
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Das Meer erstrahlt im Sonnenschein,
Als ob es golden wär.
Ihr Brüder, wenn ich sterbe,
Versenkt mich in das Meer!

Hab immer das Meer so lieb gehabt,
Es hat mit sanfter Flut
So oft mein Herz gekühlet;
Wir waren einander gut.

The sea is radiant in the sunshine
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
The sea is radiant in the sunshine,
as if it were made of gold.
My brothers, when I die,
bury me in the sea.

I have always loved the sea:
it has, with its gentle flow,
so often cooled my heart;
we were good to each other.
