Jäger, ruhe von der Jagd!

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Jäger, ruhe von der Jagd!
Weicher Schlummer soll dich decken,
Träume nicht, wenn Sonn' erwacht,
Daß Jagdhörner dich [aufwecken]1.

Schlaf! der Hirsch ruht in der Höhle,
Bei dir sind die Hunde wach,
Schlaf, nicht quäl' es [deine]2 Seele,
Daß dein edles Roß erlag.

Jäger ruhe von der Jagd!
Weicher Schlummer soll dich decken;
Wenn der junge Tag erwacht,
Wird kein Jägerhorn dich wecken.

Ellens gezang II

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

Jager, rust uit van de jacht!
Sluimer moet je zacht bedekken.
Droom niet, als de zon weer wacht,
Dat jachthoorns je komen wekken.

Slaap! Het hert heeft zich verborgen,
Je honden, zij waken door.
Slaap, vergeet nu ook je zorgen,
Dat je j' eed'le paard verloor.

Jager, rust uit van de jacht!
Sluimer moet je zacht bedekken;
Als de jonge dag weer wacht,
Zal geen jagershoorn je wekken.
