Wer zweifelt, daß man unser Herze...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wer zweifelt, dass man unser Herze verzagt und trotzig nennen mag?
Bald lachtes aller Wut der Höllen,
bald ist ein Geräusch der Wellen ihm schon ein harter Donnerschlagt.

Qui doute qu'on puisse désespérer de notre cœur

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

Qui doute qu'on puisse désespérer de notre cœur et le dire arrogant ?
Tantôt il se rit de toute la rage de l'enfer,
tantôt le bruit des vagues est comme un coup de tonnerre.
