Wo liebende Herzen sich innig vermählt
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Wo liebende Herzen sich innig vermählt,
Hat Reimar, der Alte, niemals gefehlt,
Sein Tagelied hütend zu bringen.
Wenn früh ob dem Bergfried die Sonne ersteht,
Gedenkt er [erst]1 Euer im Morgengebet,
Dem Wächter verbeut er zu singen.

Là où les cœurs amoureux sont ardemment...
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Là où les cœurs amoureux sont ardemment réunis,
Reimer l'ancien n'a jamais manqué
De présenter son chant de l'aube avec sollicitude.
Quand le soleil de lève tôt au-dessus de la tour de guet,
Il pense à vous dans la prière du matin,
Il interdit au veilleur de chanter.
