Available translation(s): CAT DUT DUT ENG ENG FRE FRI HEB IRI ITA POR
Du bist die Ruh,
Der Friede mild,
Die Sehnsucht du,
Und was sie stillt.

Ich weihe dir
[Voll]1 Lust und Schmerz
Zur Wohnung hier
Mein Aug' und Herz.

Kehr' [ein bei mir]2,
Und schließe du
Still hinter dir
Die Pforten zu.

Treib andern Schmerz
Aus dieser Brust.
Voll sey dies Herz
[Von]3 deiner Lust.

Dies Augenzelt
Von deinem Glanz
Allein erhellt,
O füll' es ganz.

F. Curschmann sets stanzas 1-4
P. Nørgård sets stanzas 1-2

An scíth is tú
Language: Irish (Gaelic)  after the German (Deutsch) 
An scíth is tú
An tsíocháin shéimh,
Is tú an tnúth
Is ina dhéidh.
 
Is beannaím thú 
Le sult is crá
Cuir fút im bhrú,
Im shúil, im lár.
 
Bí liom, a mhian
Is dún go ciúin
Na geat’ id dhiaidh
Go ciúin, a rún.
 
Is ruaig ar fán
An uile phian:
Mo chroíse lán
Go barr ded’ mhian.
 
Altóir mo shúl
Ag lonrú tá
Ód dhrithliú –
Ó, líon go barr!
