Dein Angesicht so lieb und schön

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dein Angesicht so lieb und schön,
Das hab' ich jüngst im Traum gesehn,
Es ist so mild und engelgleich,
Und doch so bleich, so [schmerzenbleich]1.

Und nur die Lippen, die sind rot;
Bald aber küßt sie bleich der Tod.
Erlöschen wird das Himmelslicht,
Das aus den frommen Augen bricht.

Ton visage si cher et si beau

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

Ton visage si cher et si beau,
Je l'ai vu récemment en rêve,
Il est si doux et angélique,
Et pourtant si pâle, [douloureusement pâle]1.

Et seules tes lèvres sont rouges ;
Mais bientôt elles pâliront sous le baiser de la mort.
Elle s'éteindra, la lumière céleste
Qui jaillit de tes yeux innocents.
