Liebeslieder-Walzer (Op.52)


O wie sanft die Quelle

O wie sanft die Quelle sich
Durch die Wiese windet!
O wie schön, wenn Liebe sich,
Zu der Liebe findet!

Ah, how gently the stream

Ah, how gently the stream
meanders through the meadow!
Ah, how sweet, when love
finds itself requited!
Translations by Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)
