Die Lerche grüßt den ersten Strahl

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Lerche grüßt den ersten Strahl,
Daß er die Brust ihr zünde,
Wenn träge Nacht noch überall
Durchschleicht die tiefen Gründe.

Und du willst, Menschenkind, der Zeit
Verzagend unterliegen?
Was ist dein kleines Erdenleid?
Du mußt es überfliegen!

L'alouette salue le premier rayon

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

L'alouette salue le premier rayon
Qui peut lui embraser la poitrine
Quand encore l'indolente nuit
Se coule dans les vallées profondes.

Et enfant des hommes tu veux,
Désespérant, te soumettre au temps ?
Qu'est ta petite souffrance terrestre ?
Tu dois la dépasser !
