Joy (German translation)

English
A A

Joy

I am wild, I will sing to the trees,
I will sing to the stars in the sky,
I love, I am loved, he is mine,
Now at last I can die!
 
I am sandaled with wind and with flame,
I have heart-fire and singing to give,
I can tread on the grass or the stars,
Now at last I can live!

Wonne

Bin außer mir und will vor Glück
den Bäumen singen und den Sternen.
Ich liebe, werd' von ihm geliebt,
nun kann ich endlich sterben!
 
Ich trag am Fuße Wind und Feuer,
kann jubeln, heißen Herzens geben,
ich geh auf Gras, ich schreit auf Sternen,
nun kann ich endlich leben!
 
Thanks!
