Language: German (Deutsch)

Thränen der ewigen Liebe!
Ach! nur dem halbgetrockneten Auge
[Wie öde, wie todt die Welt ihm erscheint!]1
Trocknet nicht, trocknet nicht,
[Thränen unglücklicher Liebe!]2

Ná triomaíg’,ná triomaíg’

Language: Irish (Gaelic) after the German (Deutsch)

Ná triomaíg’,ná triomaíg’,
Deora an ghrá atá síoraí!
Uch, sa tsúil atá leath-thriomaithe
Nach liath, nach marbh atá an saol!
Ná triomaíg’, ná triomaíg’
Deora an ghrá nach gcomhlíontar!1
