O Tod, wie bitter bist du

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

O Tod, wie bitter bist du,
Wenn an dich gedenket ein Mensch,
Der gute Tage und genug hat
Und ohne Sorge lebet;
Und dem es wohl geht in allen Dingen
Und noch wohl essen mag!
O Tod, wie bitter bist du.

O Tod, wie wohl tust du dem D├╝rftigen,
Der da schwach und alt ist,
Der in allen Sorgen steckt,
Und nichts Bessers zu hoffen,
Noch zu erwarten hat!
O Tod, wie wohl tust du!

O dood, hoe bitter ben jij

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

O dood, hoe bitter ben jij,
Als aan jou moet denken een mens
Die goede dagen en bezit heeft
En zonder zorgen voortleeft;
En die het goed gaat in alle dingen
En nog goed eten kan!
O dood, hoe bitter ben je!
 
O dood, hoe goed doe jij de arme mens,
Die verzwakt en oud is,
Die volop in zorgen zit
En niets beters te hopen
Noch te verwachten heeft!
O dood, hoe goed doe jij!
