Mein wundes Herz verlangt nach milder...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein wundes Herz verlangt nach milder Ruh',
O hauche sie ihm ein!
Es fliegt dir weinend, bange schlagend zu --
O hülle du es ein!

Wie wenn ein Strahl durch schwere Wolken bricht,
So winkest du ihm zu:
O lächle fort mit deinem milden Licht!
Mein Pol, mein Stern bist du!


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

Mon cœur blessé

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

Mon cœur blessé réclame un doux repos,
Oh, souffle-le en lui !
Il vole vers toi, pleurant et tremblant de crainte
Oh, prends-le dans tes bras !

Comme quand un rayon de soleil perce les nuages lourds,
Ainsi tu lui fais signe :
Oh, continue de sourire de ta douce lumière !
Tu es mon pôle, mon étoile !
