Schubert: D. 795-19, Der Müller und der Bach

🎼🎶 Sunday, June 13, 2021
In “Der Müller und der Bach“, the miller is succumbing to despair, and we hear the voice of the brook for the first time, urging the miller to break free from his sorrow.
THE MILLER AND THE BACH
THE MILLER:
Where a loyal heart
Passes away in love
That which Lilien
On every bed.
There must be in the clouds
The full moon go
With that his tears
Don't see people.
The angels stop there
Close your eyes
And sob and sing
The soul at rest.
THE BACH:
And when love
From the pain
A little star, a new one
Flashes in the sky.
There are three roses jumping
Half red and half white
They won't wither again
From thorn rice.
And cut the angels
The wings come off
And go every morning
Down to earth.
THE MILLER:
Oh, brook, dear brook,
You mean it so well:
Oh, brook, but do you know
How does love
Oh, down there, down there
The cool rest!
Oh, brook, dear brook,
So just sing along.

THE MILLER AND THE BROOK
THE MILLER:
Where a true heart
dies of love,
the lilies wilt
in their beds.
The full moon hides
behind the clouds
so that its tears
not be seen by men.
There the angels
cover their eyes
and, sobbing, sing
the soul to rest.
THE BROOK:
And when love
breaks free from sorrow,
a new star
shines in the sky.
And three roses spring up,
half-red and half-white,
which will never fade,
from among the thorns.
And the angels
clip their wings,
and every morning
descend to earth.
THE MILLER:
Ah, brook, beloved brook,
you mean so well:
ah, brook, but do you know
what love can do?
Ah, below, down below,
is cool rest!
Ah, brook, beloved brook,
just sing on.
