Angst und hoffen wechselnd mich...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Angst und hoffen wechselnd mich beklemmen,
Meine worte sich in seufzer dehnen,
Mich bedrängt so ungestümes sehnen,
Daß ich mich an rast und schlaf nicht kehre,
Daß mein lager tränen schwemmen,
Daß ich jede freude von mir wehre,
Daß ich keines freundes trost begehre.

Translation(s): CAT ENG FRE ITA

Mi opprime un alternarsi di speranza e angoscia

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Mi opprime un alternarsi di speranza e angoscia,
le mie parole sfociano in sospiri,
mi incalza un desiderio tanto violento,
che io non riesco a trovare riposo né sonno,
e lacrime inondano il mio letto,
e ogni gioia tengo da me lontana,
e non ho desiderio di conforto d'amico.
