Schöne Sennin, noch einmal

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schöne Sennin, noch einmal
Singe deinen Ruf in's Thal,
Daß die frohe Felsensprache
Deinem hellen Ruf erwache.
 
Horch, o [Mädchen]1 Sennin, wie dein Sang
In die Brust den Bergen drang,
Wie dein Wort die Felsenseelen
Freudig fort und fort erzählen!
 
Aber einst, wie Alles flieht,
Scheidest du mit deinem Lied,
Wenn dich Liebe fortbewogen,
Oder dich der Tod entzogen.
 
Und verlassen werden stehn,
Traurig stumm herübersehn
Dort die grauen Felsenzinnen
Und auf deine Lieder sinnen.

De alpenherderin

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

Mooie herderin, stuur nogmaals 
zingend uw roep in het dal,
zodat die blije rotsentaal 
door uw heldere stem ontwake.

Luister, o herderin, hoe uw gezang 
tot in het binnenste van de bergen doordrong,
hoe de rotsenzielen uw woord 
verheugd voortvertellen.

Maar eens, zoals alles voorbij gaat, 
scheidt ook gij, met uw lied,
wanneer de liefde u doet vertrekken, 
of de dood u aan ons onttrekt.

En wij verlaten zullen staan, 
treurig, sprakeloos naar ginds kijken,
naar de grauwe rotstoppen 
en mijmerend uw liederen overdenken.
