Ach, arme Welt

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

Ach, arme Welt, du trügest mich
Ja, das bekenn ich eigentlich,
Und kann dich doch nicht meiden.

Du falsche Welt, du bist nicht wahr,
Dein Schein vergeht, das weiss ich zwar,
Met Weh und großem Leiden.

Dein Ehr, dein Gut, du armer Welt,
Im Tod, in rechten Nöten fehlt,
Dein Schatz ist eitel falsches Geld,
Dess hielf mir, Herr, zum Frieden.

Ai, pobre món

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

Ai, pobre món, em deceps,
sí, pròpiament ho reconec,
i malgrat això no et puc evitar.

Tu, fals món, no ets veritable,
la teva resplendor empal•lideix, certament ho sé,
amb l’aflicció i els grans sofriments.

Tu pobre món, el teu honor, la teva bondat, 
són absents en la mort, en moments de gran fretura,
el teu tresor és fútil, moneda falsa,
per això, Senyor, ajuda’m a trobar la pau.
