Nun schwillt der See so bang

Nun schwillt der See so bang

Nun schwillt der See so bang,
so zärtlich sacht;
Vom blauen Ufer Gesang
steigt in die Nacht.
Mein Boot nimmt flutenwärts schwebenden Lauf.
Da hebt, da hebt sich mein Herz hinauf.

The lake now swells fearfully

The lake now swells fearfully,
So tenderly, so softly;
From its blue bank,
Song rises into the night.
My boat floats into the flood.
My heart then soars, soars aloft.
