Aus schweren Träumen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Aus schweren Träumen
Fuhr ich oft auf und sah durch Tannenwipfel
Den Mond ziehn [übern stillen]1 Grund und sang
Vor Bangigkeit und schlummert wieder ein. -

Ja, Menschenstimme, hell aus frommer Brust!
Du bist doch die gewaltigste, und triffst
Den rechten Grundton, der verworren anklingt
In all den tausend Stimmen der Natur!

Émergeant de rêves pesants
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Émergeant de rêves pesants
je m'éveillais souvent et regardais à travers la cime des sapins
Passer la lune en silence au dessus du sol, je chantais
Pris d'anxiété et retombais dans le sommeil.

Oui, humaine voix, claire, sortie d'une pieuse poitrine !
Tu es bien la plus puissante, et tu atteins
La note fondamentale qui résonne confusément
Dans les mille voix de la Nature !
