Da lieg' ich unter den Bäumen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Da lieg' ich unter den Bäumen, trüb' ist mein Herz mir und schwer,
O sage, sag' mir getreulich, mein Herz, was drückt dich so sehr?
Der Himmel ist düster umzogen, die Winde so schaurig weh'n,
Das bringt mir düstre Gedanken, drum muß in Trauer ich geh'n.

Du hast die Freude verlassen, es schweift in die Ferne dein Blick,
O komm zurück zu den Frohen, o kehr' den Deinen zurück!
Es hat mich die Freude verlassen, wo alles erstirbt in dem Hain,
Schon sinkt die herbstliche Sonne, bald bricht das Dunkel herein.

Laß schwinden die Tage der Wonne, laß fallen die Blätter herab!
Sie kehren ja alle dir wieder, verjüngt aus dunkelem Grab,
Wohl klärt sich der Himmel, die Sonne ersteht, es verjüngt sich der Hain, 
Mein Hoffen schwand und ersteht nicht, das mag meine Trauer wohl sein.

Daar lig ik onder de bomen

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

Daar lig ik onder de bomen, droef is mijn hart, zwaar zozeer,
O zeg toch, zeg mij toch eerlijk, mijn hart, wat drukt jou terneer?
De hemel is duister betrokken, en aak'lig waait de wind;
Dat brengt mij duist're gedachten, zodat de treurnis het wint.
 
Jij hebt de vreugde verlaten, de verte in kijk je zo stug.
O, kom terug bij de blijen, o keer naar je vrienden terug!
Nee, mij heeft de vreugde verlaten, in 't bos net als alles vergaan,
Reeds staat de herfstige zon laag, snel breekt het donker al aan.
 
Laat vluchten de dagen der vreugde, de blaad'ren, laat vallen ze af!
Ze keren toch allemaal terug weer, verjongd, uit 't donkere graf.
Wel klaart straks de hemel, de zon staat weer op en het bos wordt weer jong;
Mijn hoop verdween en herrijst niet, wellicht van mijn treurnis de bron.
