Ich liebe dich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Vier adlige Rosse
Voran unserm Wagen,
Wir wohnen im Schlosse
In stolzem Behagen.
Die Frühlichterwellen
Und nächtens der Blitz,
Was all sie erhellen,
Ist unser Besitz.

Und irrst du verlassen,
Verbannt durch die Lande,
Mit dir durch die Gassen
In Armut und Schande!
Es bluten die Hände,
Die Füße sind wund,
Vier trostlose Wände,
Es kennt uns kein Hund.

Steht silberbeschlagen
Dein Sarg am Altar,
Sie sollen mich tragen
Zu dir auf die Bahr',
Und fern auf der Heide
Und stirbst du in Not,
Den Dolch aus der Scheide,
Dir nach in den Tod!

Ik houd van jou

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

Vier edele paarden
Hier vóór onze wagen,
Ons huis is ’t vermaarde
Kasteel Welbehagen
De dageraadsschichten,
’t Geflits in de nacht,
Al wat zij verlichten
Is ons toebedacht.

En dwaal je verlaten,
Verjaagd, door de landen,
‘k Dwaal mee door de straten
In armoe en schande!
Met bloedende handen,
De voeten gewond, 
Vier troostloze wanden,
Ons kent, nee, geen hond.

Staat zilverbeslagen
Jouw kist bij ’t altaar,
Dan moet men mij dragen
Naar jou op de baar,
Als ver op de heide
Jij omkomt in nood,
De dolk stopt mijn lijden,
Jou na in de dood!
