Lachen und Weinen zu jeglicher Stunde
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE IRI
Lachen und Weinen zu jeglicher Stunde
Ruht bei der Lieb' auf so mancherlei Grunde.
Morgens lacht' ich vor Lust;
Und warum ich nun weine
Bei des Abendes Scheine,
Ist mir selb' nicht bewußt.

Weinen und Lachen zu jeglicher Stunde
Ruht bei der Lieb' auf so mancherlei Grunde.
Abends weint' ich vor Schmerz;
Und warum du erwachen
Kannst am Morgen mit Lachen,
Muß ich dich fragen, o Herz.

Riure i plorar a tothora
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Riure i plorar a tothora
rau en l’amor per diverses raons.
Al matí jo ric de joia
i per què ara ploro
a la llum del capvespre,
jo mateix no ho sé.

Riure i plorar a tothora
rau en l’amor per diverses raons.
Al capvespre ploro de pena,
i per què tu pots despertar-te
al matí tot rient,
t’ho haig de preguntar, oh cor meu.
