Auf dem Rhein
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Auf deinem Grunde haben
Sie an verborgnem Ort
Den goldnen Schatz begraben,
Der Nibelungen Hort.

Ihn wahren deine Wellen
Bis an den Jüngsten Tag,
Zu der geheimen Stellen
Kein Räuber dringen mag.

Mir ward ins Herz gesenket
Ein Schatz, gleich wie dem Rhein,
Er ist darin ertränket,
Wird ewig drinnen sein.

Sur le Rhin
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Dans tes profondeurs tu as enterré
En un endroit secret
Le trésor doré,
Le trésor des Nibelungen.

Tes vagues le protège
Jusqu'au jugement dernier,
Dans cet endroit secret
Aucun voleur ne peut pénétrer.

Moi aussi j'ai enseveli dans mon cœur
Un trésor, comme le Rhin,
Il s'est noyé là,
Et y restera pour toujours.
