Ich fühle Deinen Odem
  Mich überall umwehn --
Wohin die Augen schweifen
  Wähn' ich, Dein Bild zu sehn!

Im Meere meiner Gedanken
  Kannst Du nur untergehn
Um, wie die Sonne, Morgens
  Schön wieder aufzustehn!

I feel thy breath in sweetness
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
I feel thy breath in sweetness
Wave o'er me ev'rywhere;
Wheree'er my eyes may wander,
Thy form floats in the air.
And in my soul's deep ocean,
Thou canst but disappear,
To rise as sun tomorrow,
And be to me more dear.

Note: from a Rubinstein score. It is unclear which of the two translators listed on the front page wrote this particular translation.
