Wir müssen uns trennen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wir müssen uns trennen,
Geliebtes Saitenspiel,
Zeit ist es, zu rennen
Nach dem fernen, erwünschten Ziel.

Ich ziehe zum Streite,
Zum Raube hinaus,
Und hab' ich die Beute,
Dann flieg' ich nach Haus.

Im rötlichen Glanze
Entflieh' ich mit ihr,
Es schützt uns die Lanze,
Der Stahlharnisch hier.

Kommt, liebe Waffenstücke,
Zum Scherz oft angetan,
Beschirmet jetzt mein Glücke
Auf dieser neuen Bahn!

Ich werfe mich rasch in die Wogen,
Ich grüße den herrlichen Lauf,
Schon mancher ward niedergezogen,
Der tapfere Schwimmer bleibt obenauf.

Ha! Lust zu vergeuden
Das edele Blut!
Zu schützen die Freude,
Mein köstliches Gut!
Nicht Hohn zu erleiden,
Wem fehlt es an Mut?

Senke die Zügel,
Glückliche Nacht!
Spanne die Flügel,
Daß über ferne Hügel
Uns schon der Morgen lacht!

Nous devons nous séparer

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

Nous devons nous séparer
Luth adoré,
Il est temps de courir,
Vers le lointain but tant espéré.

Je vais au combat,
Pour en tirer butin,
Et quand j'aurai ma proie,
Je retournerai à la maison.

Dans les lueurs rougeoyantes,
Je m'enfuirai avec elle,
Protégés par ma lance
Et cette armure là.

Allons, chères armes,
Pour un badinage souvent exercé,
Protégez maintenant mes chances
Sur cette nouvelle lice.

Je me précipite dans les vagues,
Je salue la course magnifique,
Déjà plus d'un ont été mis à bas,
Le nageur le plus hardi reste au-dessus.

Ah ! Quelle joie de répandre
Ce noble sang !
De protéger la joie,
Mon bien délicieux !
De ne pas supporter les sarcasmes,
À qui le courage en ferait défaut ?

Lâche la bride,
Heureuse nuit !
Serre tes ailes,
Que sur les lointaines collines
Déjà le matin nous sourie !
