In der Ferne
Will ruhen unter den Bäumen hier,
die Vöglein hör' ich so gerne,
wie singet ihr so zum Herzen mir
von uns’rer Liebe was wisset ihr
in dieser weiten Ferne?

Will ruhen, hier an des Baches Rand,
wo duftige Blümlein spriessen.
Wer hat euch Blümlein hieher gesandt,
seid ihr ein herzliches Liebespfand
aus der Ferne von meiner Süssen?

English.png English translation

In the distance
I will rest under the trees here,
I so enjoy listening to the little birds.
How your singing goes to my heart!
What do you know of our love
At this far distance?

I will rest here at the edge of the brook,
Where fragrant little flowers sprout.
Who has sent you here, little flowers?
Are you a heartfelt love-pledge
Of my sweetheart from far away?
