1. Liebe Schwalbe [sung text checked 1 time]
Liebe Schwalbe, kleine Schwalbe,
Du fliegst auf und singst so früh,
Streuest durch die Himmelsbläue
Deine süße Melodie.

Die da schlafen noch am Morgen,
Alle Liebenden in Ruh',
Mit dem zwitschernden Gesange
Die Versunk'nen weckest du.

Auf! nun auf! ihr Liebesschläfer,
Weil die Morgenschwalbe rief:
Denn die Nacht wird den betrügen,
Der den hellen Tag verschlief.

1. Chère hirondelle
Chère hirondelle, petite hirondelle,
Tu voles haut et tu chantes si tôt,
Semant à travers le bleu du ciel
Ta douce mélodie.

Ceux qui dorment encore dans le matin,
Tous les amants qui se reposent,
Avec le gazouillis de tes chants
Tu les réveilles de leur sommeil.

Debout ! debout maintenant ! amants endormis,
Ainsi l'hirondelle appelle :
Car la nuit trompera
Celui qui dort pendant le jour brillant.

2. Klagen ist der Mond gekommen [sung text checked 1 time]
Klagen ist der Mond [gekommen]1,
Vor der Sonne Angesicht,
Soll ihm noch der Himmel frommen,
Da du Glanz ihm nahmst und Licht?

Seine Sterne ging er zählen,
Und er will vor Leid vergehn:
Zwei der schönsten Sterne fehlen,
Die in deinem Antlitz stehn.

2. La lune est venue se plaindre
La lune est venue se plaindre
Devant les yeux du soleil :
À quoi lui sert le ciel,
Si tu as pris son éclat et sa lumière ?

Elle est allée compter ses étoiles,
Et elle mourra de chagrin :
Deux des plus belles étoiles manquent,
Celles qui appartiennent à ton visage.

3. Fensterlein, nachts bist du zu [sung text checked 1 time]
Fensterlein, nachts bist du zu,
Tust auf dich am Tag mir zu Leide:
Mit Nelken umringelt bist du;
O öffne dich, Augenweide!

Fenster aus köstlichen Stein,
Drinnen die Sonne, die Sterne da draußen,
O Fensterlein heimlich und klein,
Sonne [darinnen und Rosen daraußen]1.

3. Petite fenêtre, la nuit tu es fermée
Petite fenêtre, la nuit tu es fermée,
Et le jour, pour mon chagrin, tu es ouverte :
Tu es encadrée par des œillets ;
Ô ouvre-toi, pour le plaisir des yeux !

Fenêtre de pierre précieuse,
Dedans le soleil, dehors des étoiles,
Ô petite fenêtre, secrète et petite,
Dedans le soleil et dehors des roses.

4. Ich gehe des Nachts [sung text checked 1 time]
Ich gehe des Nachts, wie der Mond tut gehn,
Ich suche, wo den Geliebten sie haben:
Da hab ich den Tod, den finstern, gesehn.
Er sprach: such nicht, ich hab ihn begraben.

4. Je marche dans la nuit comme fait la lune
Je marche dans la nuit comme fait la lune,
Je cherche où ils ont emporté mon bien-aimé :
Mais alors j'ai vu la mort, la noire,
Elle a dit : ne cherche plus, je l'ai enterré.

5. Blaues Sternlein [sung text checked 1 time]
Blaues Sternlein, du sollst schweigen,
Das Geheimnis gib nicht kund.
Sollst nicht allen Leuten zeigen
Unsern stillen [Liebesbund]1.

Mögen andre stehn in Schmerzen,
Jeder sage, was er will;
Sind zufrieden unsre Herzen,
Sind wir beide gerne still.

5. Petite étoile bleue
Petite étoile bleue, tu dois te taire,
Ne révèle pas le secret.
Tu ne dois pas montrer à tout le monde
Le lien silencieux entre nos cœurs.

Les autres peuvent rester dans la douleur,
Qu'ils disent ce qu'ils veulent ;
Nos cœurs sont contents,
Nous sommes heureux tous les deux en silence.

6. Briefchen schrieb ich [sung text checked 1 time]
Briefchen schrieb und warf in den Wind ich,
Sie fielen ins Meer, und sie fielen auf Sand.
Ketten von Schnee und von Eise, die bind' ich,
Die Sonne zerschmilzt sie in meiner Hand.

Maria, Maria, du sollst es dir merken:
Am Ende gewinnt, wer dauert im Streit,
Maria, Maria, das sollst du bedenken:
Es siegt, wer dauert in Ewigkeit.

6. J'ai écrit des petites lettres
J'ai écrit des petites lettres et je les ai jetées au vent,
Elles sont tombées dans la mer, et elles sont tombées sur le sable.
Dans les chaînes de la neige et de la glace, je les ai attachées,
Le soleil les fait fondre dans ma main.

Maria, Maria, tu dois le noter :
Celui qui persiste dans la lutte gagne à la fin.
Maria, Maria, tu dois le comprendre :
Celui qui persiste dans l'éternité l'emporte.
