Original text and translations

German.png German text

Wenn im letzten Abendstrahl gold'ne Wolkenberge steigen,
gold'ne Wolkenberge steigen und wie Alpen sich erzeigen,
frag ich oft mit Thränen:
liegt wohl zwischen jenen
mein ersehntes Ruhethal?
Liegt wohl dort mein ersehntes Ruhethal?

Valley of Rest
When in the final rays of evening
golden mountain clouds rise
like Alpen peaks on high,
I often ask sorrowfully:
Is my own final resting-place
among them?
