I had never heard or heard of "Stehn zwei Stern am hohen Himmel" until coming across it in Lieder, Songs und Gospels 1
. This folksong from Westerwald is a slightly melancholic song of a young man separated very far away from his beloved. He sees two very bright stars in the night sky which makes him think of his beloved and what she is thinking in that moment. He finishes the song by declaring that nothing is finer than love. Quite right, too!
