Seit ich ihn gesehen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Seit ich ihn gesehen,
  Glaub' ich blind zu sein;
Wo ich hin nur blicke,
  Seh' ich ihn allein;
Wie im wachen Traume
  Schwebt sein Bild mir vor,
Taucht aus tiefstem Dunkel,
  Heller nur empor.

Sonst ist licht- und farblos
  Alles um mich her,
Nach der Schwestern Spiele
  Nicht begehr' ich mehr,
Möchte lieber weinen,
  Still im Kämmerlein;
Seit ich ihn gesehen,
  Glaub' ich blind zu sein.

Sinds ik hem gezien heb

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

Sinds ik hem gezien heb,
Meen ik blind te zijn;
Waar ik maar mijn blik richt,
Zie ik hem alleen;
Als in wakend dromen
Zweeft zijn beeld mij voor.
Uit het diepste donker
Breekt het lichter, [lichter]1 door.
 
Grijs en grauw is verder
Alles rondom mij,
Met mijn zussen spelen,
't Maakt mij niet meer blij.
'k Zou veel liever huilen
In mijn kamertj' alleen;
Sinds ik hem gezien heb
Meen ik blind te zijn.
