Original text and translations

German.png German text

Nicht wandle, mein Licht, dort außen Im Flurbereich!
Die Füße würden dir, die zarten, Zu naß, zu weich.
All überströmt sind dort die Wege, Die Stege dir;
So überreichlich tränte dorten Das Auge mir.

English.png English translation

Don’t wander, my light, over there in the fields!
Your dainty feet would become Too wet, too soft.
All the roads are flooded there, all your paths—
So profuse were the tears that flowed from my eyes.

Translation by Cayuga Vocal Ensemble
