Aus der Erde quellen Blumen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Aus der Erde quellen Blumen,
Aus der Sonne quillt das Licht,
Aus dem Herzen quillt die Liebe,
Und der Schmerz, der es zerbricht.

Und die Blumen müssen welken,
Und dem Lichte folgt die Nacht,
Und der Liebe folgt das Sehnen,
Das das Herz so düster macht.

Uit de aarde spruiten bloemen
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Uit de aarde spruiten bloemen,
Aan de zon ontspringt het licht,
Uit het hart komt voort de liefde,
En ’t verdriet dat het ontwricht.
 
En de bloemen gaan verwelken,
Op het licht volgt steeds de nacht,
Op de liefde volgt het smachten,
't Hart zucht in een donk're schacht.
