The Serenade
By Johann Ludwig Uhland (1787–1862)
 
From the Foreign Quarterly Review

“WHAT sounds so sweet awake me?
  What fills me with delight?
O mother, look! who sings thus
  So sweetly through the night?”
 
“I hear not, child, I see not;        5
  Oh, sleep thou softly on!
Comes now to serenade thee,
  Thou poor sick maiden, none!”
 
“It is not earthly music
  That fills me with delight;        10
I hear the angels call me:
  O mother dear, good night!”
