AUF IHRE GESUNDHEITFOR HER SAKE
Paul Flemingtrans. Sheenagh Pugh
Was ich schlafe, was ich wache,
Was mir träumet für und für,
Was mir Angst macht, was Begier,
Was ich lasse, was ich mache,

Was ich weine, was ich lache,
Was ich nehm an Kost zu mir,
Schreibe, lese, denke hier,
Die und die und diese Sache,

Was ich nicht tu, was ich tu,
Nichts und alles, reis' und ruh,
Angst und Freuden, Lust und Schmerzen:

Dieses alles, alles das
Tu ich hier ohn Unterlass
Auf Gesundheit meines Herzen.
Every sleeping, waking hour,
every dream of every night,
every time I act or wait,
all I want and all I fear,

every laugh and every tear,
all I drink and all I eat,
all I think and read and write,
this and that and so much more,

all I don't do, all I do,
pain and pleasure, joy and sorrow,
every time I rest or move,

all and nothing, all of this,
every day, for all my days,
for the sake of one I love.
