Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832): The Stars

Translated by Timothy Adès

Die Gestirne

Gott hat euch die Gestirne gesezt
Als Leiter zu Land und See
Damit ihr euch daran ergezt
Stets blickend in die Höh.

God has set the stars, your bright
Guides by land and sea:
Turn your gaze then with delight
Upward, constantly.
