Einsam bin ich nicht alleine

Language: German (Deutsch)

Einsam bin ich nicht alleine
denn es schwebt ja süss und mild
um mich her im Mondenscheine
dein geliebtes, teures Bild.

Was ich denke, was ich treibe
zwischen Freude Lust und Schmerz,
wo ich wandle, wo ich bleibe
ewig nur bei dir mein Herz!

Unerreichbar wie die Sterne
wonneblickend wie ihr Glanz,
bist du nah', doch ach so ferne
füllest mir die Seele ganz!

Eenzaam ben ik niet verlaten

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

Eenzaam ben ik niet verlaten,
Want steeds zweeft, ja zoet en mild,
Om mij heen in maanlichtstraten
Jouw geliefde, dierbaar beeld.

Wat ‘k mag denken en bedrijven
Tussen vreugde, lust en smart,
Waar ‘k mag wand’len en verblijven,
Eeuwig is bij jou mijn hart!

Onbereikbaar als de sterren,
Heerlijk glanzend als hun straal,
Heel dichtbij, maar ach zo verre
Vul jij echt mijn ziel totaal!
