Im Arm der Liebe schliefen wir selig ein
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FIN FRE ITA POR
Im Arm der Liebe schliefen wir selig ein,
Am offnen Fenster lauschte der Sommerwind,
Und unsrer Atemzüge Frieden 
Trug er hinaus in die helle Mondnacht. --

Und aus dem Garten tastete zagend sich 
Ein Rosenduft an unserer Liebe Bett
Und gab uns wundervolle Träume,
Träume des Rausches -- so reich an Sehnsucht!

Dans les bras de l'amour nous nous...
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Dans les bras de l'amour nous nous endormions, bienheureux,
À la fenêtre ouverte le vent d'été écoutait
Et notre souffle paisible
Était emporté dans la nuit dans la clair de lune brillant.

Et dehors dans le jardin, en tâtonnant et en hésitant,
Le parfum des roses venait jusqu'à notre lit d'amour
Et nous donnait des rêves merveilleux,
Des rêves enivrés -- si riches de désir !
