Ihr Haine, dunkle Haine,
Will euch mein Leid vertraun,
Mich liebet treu die Meine,
Ach Haine, dunkle Haine,
Und darf nach mir nicht schaun!

Ihr sollt mich umnachten,
Ich will die Welt nicht sehn,
Hier will ich klagen, schmachten,
Ihr sollt mich stets umnachten,
Die Blümchen all vergehn.

Zwei treue Herzen brennen,
Vereint im Liebesbund;
Soll der Verrat sie trennen,
Ach, müssen sie verbrennen,
Vom Gram der Liebe wund?

Zerschmettert, Blitzesflammen,
Was trennt der Herzen Band,
Die Schranken brecht zusammen,
Brechet, ihr Donnerflammen,
Was trennt der Herzen Band!

Bosquets, sombres bosquets,
Que ma douleur vous soit confiée,
Ma bien-aimée m'aime fidèlement,
Ah ! bosquets, sombres bosquets,
Et elle n'a pas le droit de me voir !

Vous devez m'entourer,
Je ne veux pas voir le monde,
Qu'ici je me plaigne, je me consume,
Vous devez toujours m'entourer,
Que les petites fleurs périssent toutes.

Deux cœurs fidèles brûlent
Unis dans l'amour ;
La trahison doit-elle les séparer ?
Ah ! doivent-ils brûler à mort
Blessés par le chagrin d'amour ?

Détruisez, flammes des éclairs,
Ce qui sépare le lien des cœurs,
Brisez ensemble les barrières,
Brisez, flammes du tonnerre,
Ce qui sépare le lien des cœurs !
