Auf ewig dein! Wenn Berg' und Meere...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf ewig dein! Wenn Berg' und Meere trennen,
Wenn Stürme dräun, 
Wenn Weste säuseln oder Wüsten brennen:
Auf ewig dein!

Beim Kerzenglanz im stolzen Marmorsaale,
Beim Silberschein
Des Abendmonds im stillen Hirtenthale:
Auf ewig dein!

Senkt einst mein Genius die Fackel nieder,
Mich zu befrein,
Dann hallts noch im gebrochnen Herzen wieder:
Auf ewig dein!

Teu per sempre! Encara que les muntanyes...

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

Teu per sempre! Encara que les muntanyes i el mar se separin,
que les tempestes bramulin,
que el vent de ponent murmuregi o cremin els deserts:
teu per sempre!

A la llum de les espelmes, a la superba estança de marbre,
a la resplendor argentada
de la lluna del capvespre, a la tranquil•la vall dels pastors:
teu per sempre!

Si un dia el meu esperit abaixa el brandó
per alliberar-me,
llavors ressonarà encara en el cor trencat:
teu per sempre!
