Je weiter meine stimme dringt je heller sie mir weider klingt vonunten?

Je weiter meine Stimme dringt,
Je heller sie mir weider klingt
Von unten is a line from a piece of poetry by Wilhelm Müller (October 7, 1794 - September 30, 1827), titled Der Hirt auf dem Felsen (The Shepherd on the Rock).

It translates as

The farther that my voice resounds,
So much the brighter it rebounds
From under.


The lyrics were set to music by the composer Franz Schubert in 1828 during the last six months of his life.
