Für Musik

low voice and piano / 2.5 minutes

Setting of an oft-set German text by Emanuel von Geibel.
The translation below is by Walter A. Aue.

Now the shadows darken,
Star after stars awakens.
What a breath of longing
Flows through the night.

Through the sea of dreams
Steers without rest,
Steers my soul
Toward your soul.

The one that has surrendered itself to you,
Take her away completely!
Alas! You know that I no longer
Belong to myself.
