Huntsman, rest! thy chase is done

Language: English

"Huntsman, rest! thy chase is done,
While our slumbrous spells assail ye,
Dream not, with the rising sun, 
Bugles here shall sound reveillie.

Sleep! the deer is in his den;
Sleep! thy hounds are by thee lying;
Sleep! nor dream in yonder glen,
How thy gallant steed lay dying. 

Huntsman, rest! thy chase is done,
Think not of the rising sun,
For at dawning to assail ye,
Here no bugles sound reveillie." -

Translation(s): CAT GER

Caçador, reposa de la cacera!

Language: Catalan (Català) after the English

Caçador, reposa de la cacera!
Un dolç son et cobrirà,
no somiïs quan surti el sol
que els corns de caça et desperten.

Dorm! El cérvol reposa al seu cau,
al teu costat els gossos vetllen,
dorm, que no sigui un turment per a la teva ànima,
la mort del teu noble corser.

Caçador, reposa de la cacera!
Un dolç son et cobrirà,
quan apunti el nou dia,
cap corn de caça et despertarà.
