In Liebeslust, in Sehnsuchtsqual

Language: German (Deutsch)

In Liebeslust, in Sehnsuchtsqual,
  O höre mich!
Eins sing' ich nur viel tausendmal
  Und nur für dich!

Ich sing' es laut durch Wald und Feld,
  O höre mich!
Ich sing' es durch die ganze Welt:
  Ich liebe dich!

Und träumend noch in stiller Nacht
  Muß singen ich,
Ich singe, wenn mein Aug' erwacht:
  Ich liebe dich!

Und wenn mein [Aug']1 im Tode bricht,
  O sähst du mich!
Du sähst, daß noch [dies]2 Auge spricht:
  Ich liebe dich!

Dans le transport de l'amour

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Dans le transport de l'amour, dans un désir
Oh, écoute-moi !
Je chante seulement un unique chant des milliers de fois
Et seulement pour toi !

Je le chante fort dans la forêt et les champs,
Oh, écoute-moi !
Je le chante à travers le monde entier :
Je t'aime !

Et en rêvant dans la nuit silencieuse
Je dois le chanter,
Je chante quand mes yeux s'éveillent :
Je t'aime !

Et quand mon cœur se brise dans la mort,
Oh si tu me voyais !
Tu verrais mes yeux dire encore :
Je t'aime !
