Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Es rinnen die Wasser Tag und Nacht,
Deine Sehnsucht wacht.
Du gedenkest der vergangenen Zeit,
Die liegt so weit.
Du siehst hinaus in den Morgenschein
Und bist allein.
Es rinnen die Wasser Tag und Nacht,
Deine Sehnsucht wacht.

Het water, het kabbelt dag en nacht
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Het water, het kabbelt dag en nacht,
Jouw verlangen wacht.
Je moet denken aan de vroegere  tijd,
Zo lang al kwijt!
Je kijkt uit 't raam waar het licht verscheen
En bent alleen.
Het water, het kabbelt dag en nacht,
Jouw verlangen wacht.
