In den angenehmen Büschen

Language: German (Deutsch)

In den angenehmen Büschen,
Wo sich Licht und Schatten mischen,
Suchet sich in stiller Lust
Aug' und Herze zu erfrischen;
Dann erheb't sich [aus]1 der Brust
Mein zufriedenes Gemüte,
Und lobsingt des Schöpfers Güte,

Durch allgemeine Schatten bricht
Ein sanftes Licht,
In welchem Dunckelheit mit sanfter Klarheit schertzet,
Und sich so wunderbar vereint,
Daß öfters jenes Strahl geschwärtzet,
Und dieses Schwartz versilbert, scheint.

A les agradables maleses

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

A les agradables maleses,
on es barregen llum i ombres,
cerquen, amb tranquil delit,
refrescar-se els ulls i el cor;
llavors, s'enlaira des del pit
el meu ànim content
i lloa la bondat del Creador.

D'una ombra qualsevol sorgeix
una llum suau,
en la què, foscor juga amb tènue claror,
i amb ella s'uneix tan meravellosament
que, sovint, aquell raig de llum s'ennegreix
i el seu color negre sembla platejat.
