Klage
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Trauer umfließt mein Leben,
Hoffnungslos mein Streben,
Stets in Gluth und Beben
Schleicht mir hin das Leben.
O! nimmer trag ich's länger.

Leiden und Schmerzen wühlen
Mir in den Gefühlen,
Keine Lüfte kühlen
Banger Ahndung [Fühlen]1.
O! nimmer trag ich's länger!

Nur ferner Tod kann heilen
Solcher Schmerzen Weilen,
Wo sich die Pforten theilen,
Werd' ich wieder heilen.
O! nimmer trag ich's länger.

Plany
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
L’aflicció envolta la meva vida,
sense esperança els meus afanys,
sempre en l’enardiment i el trontoll,
la vida s’esmuny de mi.
Oh, no ho puc suportar més!

Penes i dolors furguen
als meus sentiments,
cap oreig refresca
el meu neguitós pressentiment. 
Oh, no ho puc suportar més!

Tan sols la mort llunyana pot guarir
aquests moments de dolor,
allà on s’obrin les portes,
seré de nou guarit.
Oh, no ho puc suportar més!
