Wenn ein müder Leib begraben

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn ein müder Leib begraben,
Klingen Glocken ihn zur Ruh,
Und die Erde schließt die Wunde
Mit den schönsten Blumen zu.

Wenn die Liebe wird begraben,
Singen Lieder sie zur Ruh,
Und die Wunde bringt die Blumen --
Doch das Grab erst schließt sie zu.

Als een moe lijf wordt begraven

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

Als een moe lijf wordt begraven,
Zingen klokken ‘Rust maar zacht’
En de aarde sluit de wonde
Met de mooiste bloemenpracht!
 
Als de liefde wordt begraven,
Brengen lied’ren rust en licht,
En de wonde brengt de bloemen,
Maar het graf eerst maakt haar dicht!
