Original text and translations

German.png German text

Wenn so lind dein Auge mir und so lieblich schauet,
jede lezte Trübe flieht, welche mich umgrauet.
Dieser Liebe schöne Glut, lass sie nie verstieben!
Nimmer wird, wie ich so treu dich ein Andrer lieben.

English.png English translation

When your eyes so gently and so fondly gaze on me,
every last sorrow flees that once had troubled me.
This beautiful glow of our love —do not let it die!
Never will another love you as faithfully as I.

Translation by Cayuga Vocal Ensemble
