Bäche von gesalznen Zähren

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bäche von gesalznen Zähren,
Fluten rauschen stets einher.
Sturm und Wellen mich versehren,
Und dies trübsalsvolle Meer
Will mir Geist und Leben schwächen,
Mast und Anker wollen brechen,
Hier versink ich in den Grund,
Dort seh ins der Hölle Schlund.

Des flots de larmes amères

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

Des flots de larmes amères
Ne cessent de s'écouler en mugissant.
La tempête et les vagues me meurtrissent
Et cette mer d'affliction
Veut affaiblir mon esprit et ma vie,
Mât et ancre vont se rompre,
Je sombre dans l'abîme,
Où je vois le gouffre de l'enfer.
