Ich hör' meinen Schatz
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Ich hör' meinen Schatz,
Den Hammer er schwinget,
Das rauschet, das klinget,
Das dringt in die Weite,
Wie Glockengeläute,
Durch Gassen und Platz.

Am schwarzen Kamin,
Da sitzet mein Lieber,
Doch geh' ich vorüber,
Die Bälge dann sausen,
Die Flammen aufbrausen
Und lodern um ihn.

De smid
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ik hoor van mijn schat
De hamer rinkinken,
't Is ketsen en klinken;
Het gaat zich verbreiden,
Als klokken die luiden,
Door stegen en stad.
 
In 'n pikzwarte smis
Daar zit1, ja, mijn minnaar,
Maar loop ik soms langs daar,
'k Hoor balgen dan blazen,
De vlammen, zij razen
En luid klinkt gesis.
