lyrics

Der Hirt auf dem Felsen, D. 965
(Shepherd on the Rock)

by Franz Schubert (Wilhelm Müller and Karl August Varnhagen von Ense)

When, from the highest rock up here,
I look deep down into the valley,
And sing,

Far from the valley dark and deep
Echoes rush through, upward and back to me,
The chasm.

The farther that my voice resounds,
So much the brighter it echos
From under.

My sweetheart dwells so far from me,
I hotly long to be with her
Over there.

I am consumed in misery,
Happiness is far from me,
Hope has on earth eluded me,
I am so lonesome here.

So longingly did sound the song,
So longingly through wood and night,
Towards heaven it draws all hearts
With amazing strength.

The Springtime will come,
The Springtime, my happiness,
Now must I make ready
To wander forth.
