Früh, [wann]1 die Hähne kräh'n,
Eh' die Sternlein [verschwinden]2,
  Muß ich am [Herde stehn]3,
  Muß Feuer zünden.

Schön ist der [Flammen]4 Schein,
[Es]5 springen die Funken.
  Ich schaue so [drein]6,
  In Leid versunken.

Plötzlich, da kommt es mir,
Treuloser Knabe,
  Daß ich die Nacht von dir
  Geträumet habe.

Träne auf Träne dann
Stürzet hernieder;
  So kommt der Tag heran -
  O ging er wieder!

De bon matí, quan canten els galls
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
De bon matí, quan canten els galls,
abans que les estrelles desapareguin,
haig d’estar a la llar,
haig d’encendre el foc.

Bonica és la resplendor de les flames,
salten les espurnes.
Jo esguardo el foc,
immersa en la meva pena.

De sobte, em ve al cap,
noi infidel,
que aquesta nit 
he somiat amb tu.

Llavors, llàgrima rere llàgrima
em corren cara avall;
així es presenta el dia,
oh, si ja hagués passat!
