Stille Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Könnt' ich dich in Liedern preisen,
Säng' ich dir das längste Lied.
Ja, ich würd' in allen Weisen
Dich zu singen nimmer müd'!

Doch was immer mich betrübte,
Ist, daß ich nur immer stumm
Tragen kann dich, Herzgeliebte,
In des Busens Heiligtum.

Und daß du, was laut ich sage,
Oder preis' in Sangeslust,
Meinest, daß ich tiefer trage
Als dich, Herz, in warmer Brust.

Dieser Schmerz hat mich bezwungen,
Daß ich sang dies kleine Lied,
Doch von bitterm [Leid]1 durchdrungen,
Daß noch keins auf dich geriet.

Amour silencieux

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

Si je pouvais te louer en chants,
Je te chanterais le chant le plus long.
Oui, dans tous les modes je ne me
Lasserais jamais de chanter !

Mais ce qui m'a toujours troublé
Est que toujours, seulement en silence,
Je peux te porter, ma bien-aimée,
Dans le sanctuaire de mon cœur.

Et que toi, quoi que je dise à voix haute
Ou que je loue dans un chant joyeux,
Tu penses que je te porte plus profondément
Que toi, mon cœur, dans ma poitrine chaude.

Cette douleur m'a forcé
À chanter cette petite chanson,
Mais je suis imprégné d'une tristesse amère
Que tu n'aies même pas entendu une note.
