Hinüber wall' ich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hinüber wall' ich,
Und jede Pein
Wird einst ein Stachel
Der Wollust seyn.
Noch wenig Zeiten,
So bin ich los,
Und liege trunken
Der Lieb' im Schooß.
Unendliches Leben
Wogt mächtig in mir;
Ich schaue von oben
Herunter nach dir.
An jenem Hügel
Verlischt dein Glanz -
Ein Schatten bringet
Den kühlenden Kranz.
O! sauge, Geliebter,
Gewaltig mich an,
Daß ich entschlummern
Und lieben kann.
Ich fühle des Todes
Verjüngende Flut,
Zu Balsam und Aether
Verwandelt mein Blut -
Ich lebe [bey]1 Tage
[Voll]2 Glauben und Muth,
Und sterbe die Nächte
In heiliger Glut.

Nachthymne

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Straks ga ik over
En elke pijn
Zal eens een prikkel
Van wellust zijn.
Maar weinig tijd nog,
Dan ben ik vrij
En lig ik dronken
Aan liefdes zij.
Oneindig groot leven
Golft machtig in mij;
Ik kijk van daarboven:
Daaronder ben jij.
Bij gindse heuvel
Vervaagt jouw glans -
Een schaduw brengt je
Een koelende krans.
O, zuig mij, mijn liefste,
Met alle macht aan,
Dat ik ontslapen
En liefhebben kan!
Ik voel van de dood de
Verjongende vloed,
In balsem en ether
Verandert mijn bloed --
Ik leef overdag vol
Geloof en vol moed
En sterf alle nachten
In heilige gloed.
