Wie lieblicher Klang,
o Lerche, dein Sang!
er hebt sich, er schwingt sich in Wonne.
Du nimmst mich von hier,
ich singe mit dir,
wir steigen durch Wolken zur Sonne.

Lark's Song
How lovely a sound,
O lark, your song!
It rises, it soars in bliss.
You take me from here,
I sing with you,
We ascend through the clouds to the sun.
