My heart is sair

Language: Scottish (Scots)

My heart is sair, I daurna tell,
My heart is sair for somebody,
I could wake a winter's night, 
For the sake o' somebody,
Oh, hon!  for somebody!
I could range the world around
For the sake o' somebody.

Ye powers that smile on virtuous love,
Oh!  sweetly smile on somebody;
Frae ilka danger keep him free,
And send me safe my somebody.
Oh, hon!  for somebody!
I wad dae what wad I no'?
For the sake o' somebody.

Mein Herz ist schwer, Gott sei's geklagt

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

Mein Herz ist schwer, Gott sei's geklagt,
Mein Herz ist schwer für Einen.
O Gott, eine lange Winternacht
Könnt' wachen ich für Einen!
O Leid, für Einen!
O Freud', für Einen!
Die ganze Welt könnt' ich durchziehn für Einen!

Ihr Mächte, reiner Liebe hold,
O lächelt mild auf Einen!
Schützt vor Gefahr ihn, bringt gesund
Zurück mir meinen Einen!
O Leid, für Einen!
O Freud', für Einen!
Ich tät' - o Gott, was tät' ich nicht für Einen?
