19f. Ward euch ihrer minder

From Dank-Hymne der Freundschaft, H 824e, Part II, Verse 6

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach
D major

German text

English translation

Ward euch ihrer minder,
Even if the number of joys decreased,
als die Kindheit floh,
once childhood flew,
wallte nicht gesünder
did your breast later not prove
eure Brust und froh?
healthier and happy?
Bei der Liebe Sehnen
You were wishing for more
wünschtet ihr euch mehr,
when you were longing for love,
blühten junge Schönen
and young passionate beauties
fühlend um euch her.
were blossoming around you.
