Come, with thy lute, to the fountain;
Sing me a song of the mountain;
Sing happy and free;
There, while the ray is declining,
While its last roses are shining,
Sweet shall our melodies be,
Under the broad Linden tree,
Under the broad Linden tree,

Come, where the zephyrs are straying;
Where, 'mid the flower buds playing,
Rambles the blithe summer bee
Let the lone churl, in his sorrow.
He, who despairs of the morrow,
Far to his solitude flee,
Under the dark Cypress tree,
Under the dark Cypress tree.
