Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG ENG FRE
[Wann]1 im letzten Abendstrahl

Und wie Alpen sich erzeigen,
Frag' ich oft mit Tränen:
Liegt wohl zwischen jenen
Mein ersehntes Ruhetal?

Als in 't laaste zon‑gestraal
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Als in 't laaste zon-gestraal
Gouden wolkenbergen prijken
Die wel Alpentoppen lijken,
Vraag ik vaak in tranen:
Kan ‘k de plaats daar wanen
Waar ik graag eens rusten zal?
