Wie lange schon war immer mein Verlangen

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

Wie lange schon war immer mein Verlangen:
Ach wäre doch ein Musikus mir gut!
Nun ließ der Herr mich meinen Wunsch erlangen
Und schickt mir einen, ganz wie Milch und Blut.
Da kommt er eben her mit sanfter Miene,
Und senkt den Kopf und spielt die Violine.

Depuis combien de temps mon désir est là

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

Depuis combien de temps mon désir est là :
Ah, si seulement un musicien m'aimait !
Maintenant le Seigneur a exaucé mon vœu
Et m'en a envoyé un, tout comme le lait et le sang,
Ici il vient avec un air délicat,
Et incline sa tête et joue du violon.
