Wie viele Zeit verlor ich, dich zu...

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

Wie viele Zeit verlor ich, dich zu lieben!
Hätt ich doch Gott geliebt in all der Zeit.
Ein Platz im Paradies wär mir verschrieben,
Ein Heilger säße dann an meiner Seit.
Und weil ich dich geliebt, schön frisch Gesicht,
Verscherzt ich mir des Paradieses Licht,
Und weil ich dich geliebt, schön Veigelein,
Komm ich nun nicht ins Paradies hinein.

Combien de temps j'ai perdu en t'aimant...

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

Combien de temps j'ai perdu en t'aimant !
Si seulement j'avais aimé Dieu pendant tou ce temps,
Une place au paradis serait maintenant à moi,
Un saint serait assis à mon côté.
Et parce que je t'aimais, beau visage frais,
J'ai perdu par ma faute la lumière du paradis,
Et parce que je t'aimais, belle violette,
Maintenant je n'entrerai pas au paradis.
