Margarete Münsterberg, ed., trans.  A Harvest of German Verse.  1916.
 
Evening
By Emanuel Geibel (1815–1884)
 
NOW that shadows deepen,
Star by star grows bright,
What a breath of longing
Floods the silent night!
 
Through the sea of visions,        5
Restless for its goal,
All my soul is steering
Ever toward thy soul.
 
Take my soul, surrendered
Quite to thee alone;        10
Ah, thou knowest: never
Can I be mine own!
