Cidli, du weinest, und ich schlummre sicher,
Wo im Sande der Weg verzogen fortschleicht;
Auch wenn stille Nacht ihn umschattend decket,
Schlummr' ich ihn sicher.

Wo er sich endet, wo ein Strom das Meer wird,
Gleit' ich über den Strom, der sanfter aufschwillt;
Denn, der mich begleitet, der Gott gebots ihm!
Weine nicht, Cidli.

Cidli, tu plores i jo dormitejo segur
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Cidli, tu plores i jo dormitejo segur
allà on, desfigurat, el camí s’esmuny en la sorra;
encara que la silenciosa nit el cobreixi d’ombres,
jo dormitejo segur.

Allà on acaba, on el riu esdevé mar,
llisco damunt el corrent que creix suaument;
car, aquell que m’acompanya, Déu, així ho ha ordenat.
No ploris, Cidli!
