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's strange magic
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
I feel thy breath's strange magic
Alike where'er I be.
Where'er my footsteps wander,
I see but only thee.
Thou can'st but sink belov'd one
Beneath my song's deep flow
To rise afresh each morning
E'en like the sun aglow.

From a Maude Valerie White score, 16 German Songs, Huntsville, Texas: Recital Publications, 1995.
