Mond verhüllt sein Angesicht
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Hungarian (Magyar) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Mond verhüllt sein Angesicht,
süßes Lieb, ich zürne dir nicht.
Wollt ich zürnend dich betrüben, sprich
wie könnt ich dich dann lieben?

Heiß für dich mein Herz entbrennt,
keine Zunge dir's bekennt.
Bald in Liebesrausch unsinnig,
bald wie Täubchen sanft und innig.

De maan verhult haar aangezicht
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
De1 maan verhult haar aangezicht,
Lieve schat, jij wordt niet beticht.
Wild’ ik jou door toorn benauwen,
Zeg: hoe kon ‘k van jou dan houen?
 
Vuur voor jou in ‘t hart mij vlamt,
Maar mijn tong is als verlamd,
Soms in liefdesroes uitzinnig,
Soms als duifjes zacht en innig.
