Mir ist, nun ich dich habe,

Mir ist zum stillen [Grabe]1
Dein Herz erworben.

Em fa l’efecte, ara que et tinc
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Em fa l’efecte, ara que et tinc,
com si m’hagués de morir.
Què podria, que em delectés,
a més a més aconseguir?

Em fa l’efecte, ara que et tinc,
que estic mort.
El teu cor conquerit,
és per a mi, com una tomba silenciosa.
