Original text and translations

German.png German text

Ein dunkeler Schacht ist Liebe
ein gar zu gefährlicher Bronnen;
da fiel ich hinein, ich Armer,
kann weder hören noch sehn,
nur denken an meine Wonnen,
nur stöhnen, in meinem Wehn.

English.png English translation

Love is a dark pit,
a far too dangerous well;
and poor me, I fell into it.
Now I can neither hear nor see;
I can only remember my delight,
only groan in my misery.

Translation by Cayuga Vocal Ensemble
