Am Grabe Anselmos
German source: Matthias Claudius

Dass ich dich verloren habe,
Dass du nicht mehr bist,
Ach, dass hier in diesem Grabe
Mein Anselmo ist,
Das ist mein Schmerz!
Seht, wie liebten wir uns beide,
Und so lang ich bin, kommt Freude
Niemals wieder in mein Herz.

At Anselmo's Grave
English translation © Richard Wigmore

That I have lost you,
that you are no more,
that my Anselmo lies
here in this grave:
that is my sorrow!
See, we loved each other,
and as long as I live joy
will never return to my heart.

Mein Anselmo ist,

Seht, wie liebten wir uns beide,
See, we loved each other,
Und so lang ich bin, kommt Freude
and as long as I live joy
Niemals wieder in mein Herz.
will never return to my heart.
