The Shepherd’s Song on the Lord’s Day
By Johann Ludwig Uhland (1787–1862)
 
Translation of Walter William Skeat

  THE LORD’S own day is here!
Alone I kneel on this broad plain:
A matin-bell just sounds; again
  ’Tis silence, far and near.
 
  Here kneel I on the sod:        5
Oh, deep amazement, strangely felt!
As though, unseen, vast numbers knelt
  And prayed with me to God.
 
  Yon heaven, afar and near,—
So bright, so glorious seems its cope        10
As though e’en now its gates would ope;—
  The Lord’s own day is here!
