Dein Angesicht so lieb und schön

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dein Angesicht so lieb und schön,
Das hab' ich jüngst im Traum gesehn,
Es ist so mild und engelgleich,
Und doch so bleich, so [schmerzenbleich]1.

Und nur die Lippen, die sind rot;
Bald aber küßt sie bleich der Tod.
Erlöschen wird das Himmelslicht,
Das aus den frommen Augen bricht.

Jouw aangezicht

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

Jouw aangezicht, zo lief, sereen,
Mij onlangs in een droom verscheen,
Zo mild dat jij een engel leek
En toch zo bleek, zo smart'lijk bleek.
 
Alleen de lippen, die zijn rood;
Maar spoedig kust hen bleek de dood,
Uitdoven zal het hemels licht
Dat in jouw dapp're ogen zwicht.
