Wenn ich mir in stiller Seele

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn ich mir in stiller Seele
Singe leise Lieder vor:
Wie ich fühle, daß sie fehle,
Die ich einzig [auserkohr]1;
Möcht' ich hoffen, daß sie sänge,
Was ich ihr so gern vertraut;
Ach! aus dieser Brust und Enge
Drängen frohe Lieder laut.

Als ik mij in stil pauzeren

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

Als ik mij in stil pauzeren
Zachtjes zing wat lied’ren voor,
O, hoe voel 'k dan háár mankeren,
Die ‘k als enige uitverkoor;
Mocht ik hopen op haar zangen,
Die ik graag voor haar schreef uit,
Ach, uit deze borst, die bange,
Barstten blijde lied’ren uit.
