This Lied was composed in Vienna on March 24, 1876. Rott wrote down the vocal part without the lyrics which may be added, however.


DAS ABENDGLÖCKLEIN
Vincenz Zusner (1803-1874)

THE LITTLE EVENING BELL
Vincenz Zusner (1803-1874)

Des Glöckchens Schall durchtönt das Tal,
Mir Ruhe zu verkünden;
Nur ich allein mit meiner Pein
Vermag sie nicht zu finden.
The little bell is resounding through the valley,
To announce peace to me;
I, however, alone with my pain,
Cannot find it.
Wann läutest du denn mir zur Ruh'
Von deinem Kirchlein droben?
Sei ruhig, Herz! Ein jeder Schmerz
Hört einmal auf zu toben.
When will you ring me to my rest
From your little church up there?
Be quiet, heart! Any pain
Will stop to ravage in the end.
Einst wird dich schon des Glöckchens Ton
Mit deiner Qual versöhnen.
Und schweigt der Klang auch noch so lang,
Er muß doch endlich tönen!
One day the little bell's sound
Will reconcile you with your torments.
And even if the sound is silent for a long time
It must resound at last!
