Original text and translations

German.png German text

Verzicht, o Herz, auf Rettung,
dich wagend in der Liebe Meer!
Denn tausend Nachen schwimmen
zertrümmert am Gestad umher!

German text by Georg Friedrich Daumer (1800-1875)
Based on a text in Turkish by Anonymous/Unidentified Artist [text unavailable]

English.png English translation

Relinquish, o heart, the hope of rescue
as you venture out into the sea of love!
For a thousand boats float
wrecked about its shores!
