Min lille Fugl, hvor flyver Du
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Min lille Fugl, hvor flyver Du,
Imellem grønne Grene?
Ak, mon jeg rinder dig i Hu?
Mit Hjerte briste vil itu! --
-- O Gud, hvor jeg dog er ene!

Du sagde, at Du var mig god;
Ja, godt mig Alle mene,
Men hvis Du ret min Sorg forstod,
Du kom, Du sang mig Sjæle-Mod;
Da sad jeg ikke alene.

Min lille Fugl, Du kommer ej
Fra dine grønne Grene;
Jeg stille vandre maa min Vej; --
Ak, ingen elsker Dig som jeg!
-- O Gud, hvor jeg [dog er]1 ene!

Mein Vögelchen
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Danish (Dansk) 
Mein Vögelchen, was fliegst in Hast 
durch Büsche du im Haine?
denkst du an mich so ohne Rast?
Mein Herz es will zerspringen fast!
O Gott, wie bin ich alleine!

Du sagtest mir, du meinst es gut,
wie Keiner mit mir meine;
doch wenn mein Kummer weh dir thut,
sing doch in meine Seele Muth
dann säß' ich nicht so alleine!

Mein Vögelchen, erhebst du dich 
nicht aus dem Busch im Haine?
still wandle meine Pfade ich -
Ach, so wie ich liebt Niemand dich!
O Gott, wie bin ich alleine.

From a Gade score.
