[Ich]1 armes Klosterfräulein!
O Mutter! was hast du gemacht!

Zwei Vöglein fliegen in Ruh'!
Viel Glück, ihr Vöglein, ihr flieget
Der besseren Heimat zu!

Kloosterzustertje

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

Ik1, arme kloosterzuster!
O moeder, wat heb jij gedaan!
Lente passeerde de tralies,
Bracht2 mij geen bloempje zelfs aan!
 
Ach3, hoe ver, hoe ver ginds4 onder,
Twee schaapjes lopen in ’t dal!
Geluk, o schaapjes! Je zag toch
De lente voor d’ eerste maal!
 
Ach5, hoe ver, hoe ver ginds6 boven,
Twee vogels vliegen in rust!
Geluk, o vogels! Je vliegt toch
Naar huis, naar een7 beet’re kust!
