The golden sun it shineth
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
The golden sun it shineth,
Upon the sea down streaming,
And all the waves they tremble,
Beneath its light's clear beaming.

Thou like a sun, too, art glowing,
My spirit is an ocean,
Each wave for thee is yearning,
And glows in wild emotion.

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