Ihr Grab

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dort ist ihr Grab -
Die einst im Schmelz der Jugend [glühte]1,
Dort fiel sie - dort - die schönste Blüthe
Vom Baum des Lebens ab.

Dort ist ihr Grab -
Dort schläft sie unter jener Linde.
Ach! nimmer ich ihn wiederfinde
Den Trost, den sie mir gab!

Dort ist ihr Grab -
Vom Himmel kam sie, daß die Erde
Mir Glücklichen zum Himmel werde -
Und dort stieg sie hinab.

Dort ist ihr Grab
Und dort in jenem stillen Hallen, -
Bei ihr, laß ich mit Freuden fallen
Auch meinen Pilgerstab.

Sa tombe

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

Là est sa tombe,
Où un jour, brillant de l'éclat de la jeunesse,
Là elle est tombée, la plus belle des fleurs,
De l'arbre de la vie.

Là est sa tombe,
Là elle dort sous ce tilleul.
Ah, jamais je ne retrouverai
Le réconfort qu'elle m'apportait.

Là est sa tombe,
Elle venait du ciel, pour que la terre
Semble être le ciel pour moi dans mon bonheur,
Et là elle est descendue.

Là est sa tombe,
Et là dans ces salles silencieuses
Près d'elle, ace joie je laisse tomber
Aussi mon bâton de pèlerin.
