My first great joy

The crystal-light of the room.

Your first long dress

You put on for the first ball.

A beautiful night

That I will never forget.

I remember now

How the chandelier

Lit up the room.

My first dance with you,

Every young man in the hall longed for

But only to me did you give

The first dance, first waltz in the ball.

A proud man full of joy,

I led you arm in arm

In your white dress you radiated light

Like a queen you were the adornment of the ball.

You are dressed elegently

As you float through the dance

You have driven to my heart

And brought me the greatest enjoyment

Complete happiness

And you dance graciously

Like enchanted I turn and turn

and I am the envy of all.

You alone have been

My queen of the ball that night.

Your gaze like sunrays

Has brought me my first joy.

Never will extinguish from your eye

The crystal chandelier.

You bring me sunshine,

You shall be eternal,

Most beautiful queen of the first ball.
