1. Liebesbotschaft [sung text checked 1 time]
Rauschendes Bächlein,
So silbern und hell,
Eilst zur Geliebten
So munter und schnell?
Ach trautes Bächlein
Mein Bote sey Du;
Bringe die Grüße
Des Fernen ihr zu.

All' ihre Blumen
Im Garten gepflegt,
Die sie so lieblich
Am Busen trägt,
Und ihre Rosen
In purpurner Gluth,
Bächlein, erquicke
Mit kühlender Fluth.

[Wenn]1 sie am Ufer,
In Träume versenkt,
Meiner gedenkend
Das Köpfchen hängt;
Tröste die Süße
Mit freundlichem Blick,
Denn der Geliebte
Kehrt bald zurück.

Neigt sich die Sonne
Mit röthlichem Schein,
Wiege das Liebchen
In Schlummer ein.
Rausche sie murmelnd
In süße Ruh,
Flüstre ihr Träume
Der Liebe zu.

1. Mensaje de amor
Rumoroso arroyo, 
plateado y claro,
¿tan alegre y rápido 
corres hacia mi amada?
Ah, querido arroyo, 
sé mi mensajero 
y llévale el saludo 
del que está lejos. 

Las flores que 
en el jardín cogió 
y que graciosa 
lleva al pecho,
y sus rosas 
de fulgor púrpura,
arroyuelo, refresca 
con tus ondas.

Si a tu orilla, 
en ensueño sumida,
pensando en mí, 
su cabecita inclina,
consuela a la dulce 
con amable mirada,
pues el amado 
pronto tornará. 

Y cuando el rojizo 
Sol se oculte,
acuna a mi amada 
en el sueño,
murmúrale suave 
en el dulce reposo,
y susúrrale sueños 
de amor.

2. Kriegers Ahnung [sung text checked 1 time]
In tiefer Ruh liegt um mich her
Der Waffenbrüder Kreis;
Mir ist das Herz so bang [und]1 schwer,
Von Sehnsucht mir so heiß.

Wie hab' ich oft so süß [geruht]2
An ihrem Busen warm!
Wie freundlich schien des Heerdes Gluth,
Lag sie in meinem Arm!

Hier, wo der [Flammen]3 düstrer Schein
Ach nur auf Waffen spielt,
Hier fühlt die Brust sich ganz allein,
Der Wehmuth Thräne quillt.

Herz! Daß der Trost Dich nicht verläßt!
[Es]4 ruft noch manche Schlacht. -
Bald ruh' ich wohl und schlafe fest,
Herzliebste - Gute Nacht!

2. Presentimiento del guerero
En profundo letargo yacen entorno
los compañeros de armas;
mi corazón está inquieto y pesaroso,
y ardiente de nostalgia. 

¡Cuán a menudo he descansado dulcemente
en su cálido pecho!
Cuán amable era la llama del hogar
si ella yacía en mis brazos.

Aquí, donde el siniestro resplandor de las llamas,
¡ay! solo con las armas juega, 
el corazón está completamente solo 
y destila lágrimas de melancolía.

Corazón, que el ánimo no te abandone,
pues muchas batallas te quedan.
Pronto descansaré y dormiré seguro,
¡amada, buenas noches!

3. Frühlingssehnsucht [sung text checked 1 time]
Säuselnde Lüfte
Wehend so mild,
Blumiger Düfte
Athmend erfüllt!
Wie haucht Ihr mich wonnig begrüßend an!
Wie habt Ihr dem pochenden Herzen gethan?
Es möchte Euch folgen auf luftiger Bahn!
Wohin?

Bächlein, so munter
Rauschend zumal,
[Wallen]1 hinunter
Silbern in's Thal.
Die schwebende Welle, dort eilt sie dahin!
Tief spiegeln sich Fluren und Himmel darin.
Was ziehst Du mich, sehnend verlangender Sinn,
Hinab?

Grüßender Sonne
Spielendes Gold,
Hoffende Wonne
Bringest Du hold.
Wie labt mich Dein selig begrüßendes Bild!
Es lächelt am tiefblauen Himmel so mild,
Und hat mir das Auge mit Thränen gefüllt! -
Warum?

Grünend umkränzet
Wälder und Höh'!
Schimmernd erglänzet
Blüthenschnee!
So dränget sich Alles zum bräutlichen Licht;
Es schwellen die Keime, die Knospe bricht;
Sie haben gefunden was ihnen gebricht:
Und Du?

Rastloses Sehnen!
Wünschendes Herz,
Immer nur Thränen,
Klage und Schmerz?
Auch ich bin mir schwellender Triebe bewußt!
Wer stillet mir endlich die drängende Lust?
Nur Du [befreiest]2 den Lenz in der Brust,
Nur Du!

3. Nostalgia primaveral
¡Susurrantes brisas que sopláis suaves,
llenas del perfume de las flores!
¡Cómo me deleitáis con vuestro aliento!
¿Qué habéis hecho al palpitante corazón?
Habré de seguiros por aéreas sendas, 
¿a dónde? ¿a dónde?

Arroyuelo que pasas rumoroso,
corriendo plateado hacia el valle.
¡Tus flotantes ondas se alejan presurosas!  
Y reflejan en su profundidad las florestas y el cielo.
¿A dónde me llevas, corazón anhelante?
¿hacia abajo? ¿hacia abajo?

Juguetón oro del Sol que despunta,
las esperadas venturas traes amable,
¡cómo me deleita tu feliz imagen!
Sonríe apacible en el profundo azul del cielo 
y me llena de lágrimas los ojos,
¿por qué? ¿por qué?

Pinta de verde bosques y montañas,
radiante hace brillar el rocío de las flores,
todo lo impulsa a una luz nupcial,
se hinchan las semillas, se abren los capullos;
ellos han encontrado lo suyo,
¿y tú? ¿y tú?

¡Anhelo incesante! Corazón ansioso, 
¿siempre lágrimas, lamento y dolor?
¡También yo tengo potentes impulsos!
¿Quién colmará finalmente mi anhelo impetuoso?
Solo tú liberas la primavera en mi pecho, 
¡solo tú! ¡solo tú!

4. Ständchen [sung text checked 1 time]
Leise flehen meine Lieder
Durch die Nacht zu Dir;
In den stillen Hain hernieder,
Liebchen, komm' zu mir!

Flüsternd schlanke Wipfel rauschen
In des Mondes Licht;
Des Verräthers feindlich Lauschen
Fürchte, Holde, nicht.

Hörst die Nachtigallen schlagen?
Ach! sie flehen Dich,
Mit der Töne süßen Klagen
Flehen sie für mich.

Sie verstehn des Busens Sehnen,
Kennen Liebesschmerz,
Rühren mit den Silbertönen
Jedes weiche Herz.

Laß auch Dir die Brust bewegen,
Liebchen, höre mich!
Bebend harr' ich Dir entgegen;
Komm', beglücke mich!

4. Serenata
Leves gimen mis canciones
a través la noche hacia ti;
en la arboleda silenciosa,
amada, ven a mí.

Rumorosas susurran las altas copas 
a la luz de la Luna;
del hostil traidor las acechanzas
no temas, mi bella.

¿Oyes a los ruiseñores cantar?
Ah, ellos te imploran,
y con el lamento de sus dulces notas
te ruegan por mí.

Comprenden los íntimos anhelos,
conocen la pena de amor, 
y con sus notas plateadas
tocan todo tierno corazón.

Que también el tuyo muevan,
amada, óyeme, 
¡temblando espero tu encuentro!
¡Ven, hazme feliz!

Y como la ola

siempre el mismo 
permanece mi dolor.

Rumorosa corriente,

6. En la lejanía
¡Ay del fugitivo, 
que el mundo recorre!
Cruzando tierras extranjeras, 
la patria ha olvidado,
odiando la casa materna, 
abandona a sus amigos,
y no le sigue bendición alguna, ¡ay!, 
en su camino.

¡Corazón anhelante, 
ojos lacrimosos,
nostalgia interminable que hacia 
la patria se vuelve!
¡Pecho que hierve, 
quejas que apagan,
estrella vespertina que brilla 
y se hunde sin esperanza!

Brisas susurrantes, 
olas que se encrespan,
rayos de sol que huyen 
y nunca permanecen.
A aquella que con dolor, ¡ay!, 
rompió este fiel corazón,
saludadla por el fugitivo 
que el mundo recorre.

Ade, Du muntre, Du fröhliche Stadt, Ade!
Schon scharret mein Rösslein mit lustigem Fuß;
Jetzt nimm [meinen]1 letzten, den scheidenden Gruß.
Du hast mich wohl [nimmermehr]2 traurig gesehn,
So kann es auch jetzt nicht beim Abschied geschehn.
Ade, Du muntre, Du fröhliche Stadt, Ade!

Ade, Ihr Bäume, Ihr Gärten so grün, Ade! 
Nun reit' ich am silbernen Strome entlang,
Weit schallend ertönet mein Abschiedsgesang;
Nie habt Ihr ein [klagendes]3 Lied gehört,
So wird Euch auch keines beim Scheiden beschert.
Ade, Ihr Bäume, Ihr Gärten so grün, Ade!

Ade, Ihr freundlichen [Mägdelein]4 dort, Ade!
Was schaut Ihr aus blumenumduftetem Haus
Mit schelmischen, lockenden Blicken heraus?
Wie sonst, so grüß' ich und schaue mich um,
Doch [nimmermehr]5 wend' ich mein [Rösselein]6 um.
Ade, Ihr freundlichen [Mägdelein]4 dort, Ade!

Ade, liebe Sonne, so gehst Du zur Ruh, Ade!
Nun schimmert der blinkenden Sterne Gold.
Wie bin ich Euch Sternlein am Himmel so hold;
[Durchziehen die Welt wir]7 auch weit und breit,
Ihr gebt überall uns das treue Geleit.
Ade, liebe Sonne, so gehst Du zur Ruh, Ade!

Ade, Du schimmerndes Fensterlein hell, Ade!
Du glänzest so traulich mit dämmerndem Schein,
Und ladest so freundlich ins Hüttchen uns ein.
Vorüber, ach, ritt ich so manches mal
Und wär' es denn heute zum letzten mal?
Ade, Du schimmerndes Fensterlein hell, Ade!

Ade, Ihr Sterne, verhüllet Euch grau! - Ade!
Des [Fensterleins]8 trübes verschimmerndes Licht
Ersetzt Ihr unzähligen Sterne mir nicht;

Was hilft es [mir]9, folgt Ihr mir noch so treu!
Ade, Ihr Sterne, verhüllet Euch grau! - Ade!

7. Adiós
¡Adiós, ciudad animada y alegre, adiós!
Ya suenan de mi caballo los alegres cascos;  
recibe mi último saludo, el de despedida.
Nunca me has visto triste, 
y ahora en la partida, tampoco estaré.

¡Adiós, árboles, verdes jardines, adiós!
Cabalgo a lo largo de la plateada corriente,
y a lo lejos se oye el eco de mi canción de despedida;
nunca me habéis oído una canción triste,
ahora en la partida, tampoco os cantaré ninguna.

¡Adiós, alegres muchachas, adiós! 
¿Qué miráis desde la casa perfumada de flores 
con maliciosos ojos seductores?
Como antes, vuelvo la cabeza y saludo,
pero jamás daré vuelta a mi caballo.

¡Adiós, amable sol, que vas a descansar, adiós! 
Ya cintilan las brillantes estrellas doradas.
Cómo me sois queridas, estrellitas del cielo;
si atravesamos el mundo a todo su ancho,
nos dais doquier vuestra fiel guía. 

¡Adiós, reluciente ventanita iluminada, adiós!
Brillas entrañable con suave resplandor
e invitas amable a entrar a la casita. 
Pasé a caballo, ay, tantas veces,
pero la de hoy será la última.

¡Adiós, estrellas veladas y grises, adiós!
La luz triste y velada de la ventanita
no me la podréis reemplazar, estrellas incontables;
pero no debo tardar, tengo que irme,
¿para qué seguirme pues tan fieles?

Ich unglücksel'ger Atlas! eine Welt,
Die ganze Welt der Schmerzen muß ich tragen,
Ich trage Unerträgliches, und brechen
Will mir das Herz im Leibe.

Du stolzes Herz! du hast es ja gewollt,
Du wolltest glücklich seyn, unendlich glücklich
Oder unendlich elend, stolzes Herz,
Und jetzo bist du elend.

8. Atlas
¡Yo, infeliz Atlas! Un mundo,
todo el mundo de los dolores debo soportar.
Soporto lo insoportable, y se rompe 
el corazón dentro de mí. 

¡Tú, orgulloso corazón, tú lo has querido!
Quisiste ser feliz, para siempre feliz, 
o para siempre desgraciado, corazón orgulloso,
¡y ahora eres desgraciado!

9. Su retrato
En oscuro sueño me levanté, 
fijé la mirada en su retrato
y el amado rostro
misteriosamente cobró vida.

De sus labios salió 
una maravillosa sonrisa,
y como con lagrimas de pena
brillaron sus ojos.

También las lagrimas corrieron
por mis mejillas.
¡Pero ay, no puedo creer 
que te haya perdido!

Bella pescadora,
trae a tierra la barca;
ven, siéntate a mi lado
y hablaremos con las manos unidas.

Reclina en mi pecho tu cabecita
y nada temas,
pues te aventuras sin cuidado
a diario en el salvaje mar.

Mi corazón es como el mar,
tiene tormentas, marea y olas,
y muchas bellas perlas
en su fondo descansan.

11. Die Stadt [sung text checked 1 time]
Am fernen Horizonte
Erscheint, wie ein Nebelbild,
Die Stadt mit ihren Thürmen,
In Abenddämmrung gehüllt.

Ein feuchter Windzug kräuselt
Die graue Wasserbahn;
Mit traurigem Tacte rudert
Der Schiffer in meinem Kahn.

Die Sonne hebt sich noch einmal
Leuchtend vom Boden empor,
Und zeigt mir jene Stelle,
Wo ich das Liebste verlor.

11. La ciudad
En el lejano horizonte
brilla entre la niebla
la ciudad con sus torres,
envuelta en el crepúsculo.

Un viento húmedo encrespa
la acuática vía gris,
y con triste ritmo rema
el barquero en mi barquilla.

Se levanta el Sol una vez más, 
asciende luminoso 
y me señala el lugar
en donde a mi amada perdí.

Das Meer erglänzte weit hinaus,
Im letzten Abendscheine;
Wir saßen am einsamen Fischerhaus,
Wir saßen stumm und alleine.

Der Nebel stieg, das Wasser schwoll,
Die Möve flog hin und wieder;
Aus deinen Augen, liebevoll,
Fielen die Thränen nieder.

Ich sah sie fallen auf deine Hand,
Und bin auf's Knie gesunken;
Ich hab' von deiner weißen Hand
Die Thränen fortgetrunken.

Seit jener Stunde verzehrt sich mein Leib,
Die Seele stirbt vor Sehnen; -
Mich hat das unglückseel'ge Weib
Vergiftet mit ihren Thränen.

12. Junto al mar
A lo lejos el mar resplandecía, 
y con el último rayo del crepúsculo,
en la desierta cabaña de pesadores,
nos sentamos solitarios y en silencio.

Se levantó la niebla, crecieron las aguas,
la marea iba y venía,
y de tus ojos, plenos de amor,
rodaron las lágrimas.

Las vi caer en tu mano,
he caído de rodillas, 
y en tu blanca mano 
he bebido tus lágrimas.

Desde aquella hora se consume mi ser
y el alma muere de tristeza.
La infortunada mujer 
me ha emponzoñado con sus lágrimas.

Still ist die Nacht, es ruhen die Gassen,
In diesem Hause wohnte mein Schatz;
Sie hat schon längst die Stadt verlassen,
Doch steht noch das Haus auf demselben Platz.

Da steht auch ein Mensch und starrt in die Höhe,
Und ringt die Hände, vor Schmerzensgewalt;
Mir graust es, wenn ich sein Antlitz sehe, -
Der Mond zeigt mir meine eigne Gestalt.

Du [Doppeltgänger]1! du bleicher Geselle!
Was äffst du nach mein Liebesleid,
Das mich gequält auf dieser Stelle,
So manche Nacht, in alter Zeit?

13.
Silente está la noche, las callejuelas descansan,
en esta casa vivía mi amada.
Hace ya mucho dejó la ciudad,
pero aún está la casa en el mismo lugar.

Y hay también allí un hombre que mira hacia lo alto
y entrelaza las manos con dolor intenso.
Me horrorizo al ver su rostro:
la Luna me muestra mi propia figura.

Tú, mi otro yo, pálido compañero,
¿por qué imitas la pena de amor,
que me atormentó en este sitio,
tantas noches en otro tiempo?
