Am Wildbach die Weiden
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Am Wildbach die Weiden, 
Die schwanken Tag und Nacht. 
Die Liebe von uns beiden
Hat Gott so fest gemacht. 

Am Wildbach die Weiden, 
Die haben nicht Wort und Ton. 
Wenn sich die Augen besprechen, 
So wissen die Herzen davon.

De wilgen bij de stortbeek
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
De wilgen bij de stortbeek,
Zij zwiepen dag en nacht,
De liefde van ons tweeën
Gaf God juist rust en kracht.
 
De wilgen bij de stortbeek,
Die hebben noch klank noch woord.
Als onze ogen spreken,
Dan zijn onze harten akkoord.
