Holy night, descending softly,

Return, sweetest dreams, return!

I bear the unbearable and my heart
Breaks within this feeble frame.
You proud heart, you got what you wanted!
You longed for happiness, for eternal bliss,
Or maybe it was for misery, pro...

I think of you, when the shimmering sea waves
Shine bright on me;
I think of you, when the moon's resplendent rays
Light up each stream.
I see you, when from out the distant path
Dust is rising;
When in the depths of night, I see a stranger
I hear you, when th...
