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.
