Liebesklage
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Den stummen Felsen nur
Klag' ich, was mir das Herz
Bewegt mit tiefem Schmerz,
Das bange Sehnen,
Die Quelle meiner Tränen.

Ach! sie bleibt stumm und fern,
Ach! sie hört nicht meine Leiden!
Nur umsonst ström' ich 
meiner Wehmuth bitt're Klagen aus vollem Herzen aus!

Plainte d'amour
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Seuls les rochers muets
Me plaignent de ce que mon cœur
Agite avec une profonde douleur,
L'ardent désir,
La source de mes larmes.

Ah ! elle reste silencieuse et distante,
Ah ! elle n'entend pas ma souffrance !
Seulement en vain je répands
La plainte amère de ma tristesse hors de mon cœur !
