[Hör]1 es klagt die Flöte wieder
Und die kühlen [Brunnen]2 rauschen,
Golden wehn die Töne nieder,
Stille, [stille]3, laß uns lauschen!

Holdes Bitten, mild Verlangen,
[Wie es süß zum Herzen spricht]4!
Durch die Nacht die mich umfangen,
Blickt zu mir der Töne Licht.

Hoor, de fluit is weer aan 't klagen
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Hoor, de fluit is weer aan 't klagen,
En de koele bronnen ruisen,
Klank als goud komt wind aandragen,
Stil toch, stil toch, laat ons luist'ren.

Vriend'lijk smeken, mild verlangen,
Dat zo zoet het hart aanspreekt!
Hier tot mij, door nacht omvangen,
Zacht van 't lied het licht doorbreekt!
