Hier muß ich sie finden!
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Der Jüngling:
 Hier muß ich sie finden!
 Ich sah sie verschwinden,
 Ihr folgte mein Blick.
 Sie kam mir entgegen,
 Dann trat sie verlegen
 Und schamrot zurück.
 Ist's Hoffnung, sind's Träume?
 Ihr Felsen, ihr Bäume,
 Entdeckt mir die Liebste,
 Entdeckt mir mein Glück!

Ici je dois la trouver !
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Le jeune homme
 Ici je dois la trouver !
 Je l'ai vue disparaître,
 Vous avez suivi mon regard.
 Elle venait vers moi,
 Puis elle est revenue sur ses pas
 Embarrassée et rougissante.
 Est-ce de l'espoir ou des rêves ?
 Rochers, arbres,
 Montrez-moi ma bien-aimée,
 Montrez-moi mon bonheur !
