Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE POR
Dereinst, dereinst,
[Gedanke]1 mein,
Wirst ruhig sein.

Läßt Liebesglut
Dich still nicht werden,
In kühler Erden,
Da schläfst du gut,
[Dort ohne Lieb']2
und ohne Pein
Wirst ruhig sein.

Was du im Leben
Nicht hast gefunden,
Wenn es entschwunden,
[Wird's dir]3 gegeben,
Dann ohne Wunden
[Und ohne Pein]2
Wirst ruhig sein.

Liefdesverdriet
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
O eens, ja eens,
[O]1 mijn geest vol pijn,
Zul kalm jij zijn.
 
Geeft liefdesgloed
Je geen bedaren,
In koele aarde
Slaap je straks goed.
[Daar, onbemind]2
En zonder pijn
Zul kalm jij zijn.
 
Wat jij in 't leven
Niet hebt gevonden,
Als 't is ontbonden,
Wordt 't je gegeven.
Dan, zonder wonden
[en zonder pijn,]3
Zul kalm jij zijn.
