Original text and translations

German.png German text

Vögelein durchrauscht die Luft
sucht nach einem Aste,
und das Herz, das Herz begehrts,
wo es selig raste.

English.png English translation

A little bird rushes through the air
looking for a branch;
and the heart—it yearns for a heart
where it may blissfully rest.

Translation by Cayuga Vocal Ensemble
