English text

A mellow bell pears near,
It has so sweet a sound;
I know a maiden dear
With voice as full and round
A sunlit alm shines clear,
With clover blossoms sweet;
There dwells my maiden dear
And there my love I meet.
There flying with no fear
The swallows pass all day,
And fast, my maiden dear,
Sees chamois haste away.
I cannot linger here,
I cannot wait below;
To seek my maiden dear.
I, to the alm must go.
The mountain's call I hear,
And up the height I bound;
I know my maiden dear
Will mark my Juchhé sound.
Rejoicing come I here
My flaxen-haired sweet-heart;
I love thee maiden dear,
Nay! Bid me not depart!
