Available translation(s): FRE
Ruhe sanft mein holdes Leben, 
schlafe, bis dein Glück erwacht;
da, mein Bild will ich dir geben,
schau, wie freundlich es dir lacht:
ihr süssen Träume, wiegt ihn ein,
und lasset seinem Wunsch am Ende
die wollustreichen Gegenstände
zu reifer Wirklichkeit gedeihn.

Repose doucement, ma tendre vie
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Repose doucement, ma tendre vie,
dors jusqu'à ce que ton bonheur t'éveille ;
là, je veux te donner mon portrait,
regarde, comme il te sourit amicalement :
Doux rêves, bercez-le,
et laissez son souhait enfin
de choses pleines de volupté
se développer jusqu'à la réalité.
