Was quälst du mich, o Mißgeschick!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Was quälst du mich, o Mißgeschick!
Will der Gedanke mich nicht fliehen?
Ich sauge Lust aus ihrem Blick.
Hinweg! Ach, mächtig fühl'ich's glühen!

In tiefbewegter Brust
regt sich ein leises Sehnen,
kaum meiner selbst bewußt,
darf ich dies Glück nicht wähnen.

O schweig, betrognes Herz!
Verstummt, vergebne Klagen!
Dem Manne ziemt nicht Schmerz,
er muß mit Fassung tragen.

Qu'as‑tu à me tourmenter, ô infortune !

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Qu'as-tu à me tourmenter, ô infortune !
Cette pensée ne me fuira pas ?
Je bois le plaisir dans ton regard.
Va-t-en ! Hélas, je le sens brûler fort !

Profondément dans mon cœur ému,
Un désir faible se meut,
Dont je suis à peine conscient,
Je n'ose pas imaginer un tel bonheur.

Oh, silence, cœur trompé !
Faites silence, plaintes vaines !
La douleur ne convient pas à l'homme,
Il doit supporter avec sérénité.
