Stille Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Könnt' ich dich in Liedern preisen,
Säng' ich dir das längste Lied.
Ja, ich würd' in allen Weisen
Dich zu singen nimmer müd'!

Doch was immer mich betrübte,
Ist, daß ich nur immer stumm
Tragen kann dich, Herzgeliebte,
In des Busens Heiligtum.

Und daß du, was laut ich sage,
Oder preis' in Sangeslust,
Meinest, daß ich tiefer trage
Als dich, Herz, in warmer Brust.

Dieser Schmerz hat mich bezwungen,
Daß ich sang dies kleine Lied,
Doch von bitterm Leid durchdrungen,
Daß noch keins auf dich geriet.

Amore silenzioso

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

Se potessi lodarti nelle canzoni,
canterei il canto più lungo.
Sì, in tutti modi e le melodie
non mi stancherei mai di cantarti!

Ma ciò che sempre mi addolora
è che solo sempre muto
posso portarti, mia adorata,
nella santità del mio cuore.

E che tu dici che ciò che io dico forte, 
o celebro nella gioia del canto, 
lo porto più profondo di te, 
cuore, nel caldo petto.

Questa pena mi ha costretto
a cantare questa piccola canzone,
ma così piena di amaro dolore
che nessuno la dedicherebbe a te.
