O Sonnenschein! o Sonnenschein!
Wie scheinst du mir ins Herz hinein,
Weckst drinnen lauter Liebeslust,
Daß mir so enge wird die Brust!

Und enge wird mir Stub' und Haus,
Und wenn ich lauf' zum Thor hinaus,
Da lockst du gar ins frische Grün
Die allerschönsten Mädchen hin!

O Sonnenschein! Du glaubest wohl,
Daß ich wie du es machen soll,
Der jede schmucke Blume küßt,
Die eben nur sich dir erschließt?

Hast doch so lang' die Welt erblickt,
Und weißt, daß sich's für mich nicht schickt;
Was machst du mir denn solche Pein?
O Sonnenschein! o Sonnenschein!

Oh llum del sol! Oh llum del sol!
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Oh llum del sol! Oh llum del sol!
Com resplendeixes a dins del meu cor,
hi despertes una joia d'amor tan pura
que em fa sentir el pit massa estret!

I estretes també em semblen l'estança i la casa,
i quan surto a fora pel portal,
allà, a la fresca gespa verda, has encativat
les noies més boniques!

Oh llum del sol! Creus de veritat
que hauria de fer com tu
i besar totes les formoses flors
que s'obren per tu?

Has contemplat el món tant de temps
i saps que per a mi això no és adient;
per què doncs em fas patir tant?
Oh llum del sol! Oh llum del sol!
