O versenk', o versenk' dein Leid

Language: German (Deutsch)

»O versenk', o versenk' dein Leid,
mein Kind, in die See, in die tiefe See!«
Ein Stein wohl bleibt auf des Meeres Grund,
mein Leid kommt stets in die Höh'.

»Und die Lieb', die du im Herzen trägst,
brich sie ab, brich sie ab, mein Kind!«
Ob die Blum' auch stirbt, wenn man sie bricht,
treue Lieb' nicht so geschwind.

»Und die Treu', und die Treu',
's war nur ein Wort, in den Wind damit hinaus.«
O Mutter und splittert der Fels auch im [Sturm]1,
Meine Treue, die hält ihn aus.

Onverwoestbare liefde

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

"O, gooi weg, o, gooi weg je verdriet, mijn kind,
In de zee, in de oceaan!"
Een steen blijft daar op de bodem wel,
Mijn verdriet1 komt steeds daar vandaan.
 
"En 't gevoel dat jij in 't hart nog draagt,
Breek het af, breek het af, mijn kind!"
Gaat de bloem snel dood, als  men haar breekt,
Trouwe liefde, nee, die wint.
 
"En de trouw, en de trouw, slechts een woord was dat;
In de wind daarmee, vooruit!"
O moeder, al splintert de rots in de storm2,
Mijn verliefdheid, die houdt het uit.
