Es ist schon spät, es wird schon kalt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es ist schon spät, es [wird]1 schon kalt,
Was reitst du einsam durch den Wald?
Der Wald ist lang, du bist allein,
Du schöne Braut! Ich führ dich heim!

"Groß ist der Männer Trug und List,
Vor Schmerz mein Herz gebrochen ist,
Wohl irrt das Waldhorn her und hin,
O flieh! Du weißt nicht, wer ich bin."

So reich geschmückt ist Roß und Weib,
So wunderschön der junge Leib,
Jetzt kenn ich dich - Gott steh mir bei!
Du bist die Hexe Lorelei. -

"Du kennst mich wohl - von hohem Stein
Schaut still mein Schloß tief in den Rhein.
Es ist schon spät, es [wird]1 schon kalt,
Kommst nimmermehr aus diesem Wald."

Samtale i skogen

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

Det er allerede sent, det er allerede kaldt,
Hvorfor rir du alene gjennom skogen.
Skogen er lang, du er alene,
Du skjønne brud, jeg skal føre deg hjem!

"Stor er menns svik og list,
av smerte er mitt hjerte ødelagt,
Jakthornet virrer hit og dit,
Å flykt! Du vet ikke hvem jeg er."

Så rikt utsmykket er både hingst og kvinne,
så vidunderlig vakker den unge kropp,
Nå kjenner jeg deg -- Gud stå meg bi!
du er heksen Lorelei!

"Du kjenner meg godt, fra den høye stein
skuer stille mitt slott dypt ned i Rhinen.
Det er allerede sent, det er allerede kaldt,
Du kommer aldri mer ut av denne skogen."
