Description

This beautiful song On Wings of Song (Auf Flügeln des Gesanges) was composed by Felix Mendelssohn in 1834. It is the second of six songs for voice and piano in Mendelssohn's 6 Gesänge, Op. 34.

On Wings of Song is a setting of the poem <em>Auf Flügeln des Gesanges</em> by the German Romantic poet Heinrich Heine (1797-1856), which was first published in his Buch der Lieder in 1827.

On Wings of Song is a very romantic piece that is perfect for the signature of the marriage license or as a processional.

Lyrics

Auf Flügeln des Gesanges,
Herzliebchen, trag' ich dich fort,
Fort nach den Fluren des Ganges,
Dort weiß ich den schönsten Ort.

Dort liegt ein rotblühender Garten
Im stillen Mondenschein;
Die Lotosblumen erwarten
Ihr trautes Schwesterlein.

Die Veilchen kichern und kosen,
Und schaun nach den Sternen empor;
Heimlich erzählen die Rosen
Sich duftende Märchen ins Ohr.

Es hüpfen herbei und lauschen
Die frommen, klugen Gazell'n;
Und in der Ferne rauschen
Des heiligen Stromes Well'n.

Dort wollen wir niedersinken
Unter dem Palmenbaum,
Und Liebe und Ruhe trinken,
Und träumen seligen Traum.
On Wings of Song,
Sweetheart, I carry you away,
Away to the fields of the Ganges,
Where I know the most beautiful place.

There is a garden of red flax
In the quiet moonlight;
The lotus flowers
await their charming little sister.

The violets giggle and caress,
And gaze up at the stars;
Secretly the roses tell each other
Fragrant fairy-stories.

The pious, wise gazelles;
Hop near and listen
And far away
The sacred river's waves roar.

There we will lie down
Under the palm tree
Peace and love and drink
And dream our blissful dream.
