Sie haben mich gequälet
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Sie haben mich gequälet,
Geärgert blau und blaß,
Die einen mit ihrer Liebe,
Die andern mit ihrem Haß.

Sie haben das Brot mir vergiftet,
Sie gossen mir Gift ins Glas,
Die einen mit ihrer Liebe,
Die andern mit ihrem Haß.

Doch sie, die mich am meisten
Gequält, geärgert, betrübt,
Die hat mich nie gehasset,
Und hat mich nie geliebt.

Они меня истерзали
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Они меня истерзали
И сделали смерти бледней, —
Одни своею любовью,
Другие враждою своей.

Они мне мой хлеб отравили,
Давали мне яду с водой, —
Одни своею любовью,
Другие своею враждой.

Но та, от которой всех больше
Душа и доселе больна,
Мне зла никогда не желала,
И меня не любила она.
