Es tönt ein voller Harfenklang

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es [tönt]1 ein voller Harfenklang
Den Lieb' und Sehnsucht schwellen,
Er dringt zum Herzen tief und bang
Und läßt das Auge quellen. 

O rinnet, Tränen, nur herab,
O schlage Herz, mit Beben!
Es sanken Lieb' und Glück ins Grab,
Verloren ist [mein]2 Leben!

Er klinkt een volle harpenklank

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

Er klinkt een volle harpenklank,
Die hunkering doet zwellen,
Hij dringt het hart in, diep en bang,
En doet de tranen wellen.
 
O stroom maar, tranen, laat niet af,
O sla maar hart, blijf beven!
Geluk en liefde, 't ligt in 't graf,
Verloren is mijn1 leven!
