Es lächelt der See, er ladet zum Bade

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es lächelt der See, er ladet zum Bade,
Der Knabe schlief ein am grünen Gestade,
  Da hört er ein Klingen, 
  Wie Flöten so süß,
  Wie Stimmen der Engel
  Im Paradies.

Und wie er erwachet in seliger Lust,
Da spielen die Wasser ihm um die Brust,
  Und es ruft aus den Tiefen:
  Lieb' Knabe, bist mein!
  Ich locke den Schläfer, 
  Ich zieh ihn herein.

El lago sonríe, e invita al baño

Language: Spanish (Español) after the German (Deutsch)

El lago sonríe, e invita al baño, 
El muchacho dormía sobre un verde banco, 
Entonces oyó un tintineo, 
como de flauta dulce, 
Como las voces de los ángeles
en el paraíso. 

Y al despertarse en un deseo maravilloso, 
El agua juega contra su pecho, 
Y le llama de lo profundo: 
¡Querido muchacho, eres mío! 
Engatusé al soñador,
lo llevé abajo.
