Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Du meines Herzens Krönelein, du bist von lautrem Golde:
  Wenn andere daneben sein, dann bist du [erst]1 viel holde.
  Die andern tun so gern gescheit, du bist gar sanft und stille;
  Daß jedes Herz sich dein erfreut, dein Glück ist's, nicht dein Wille.
Die andern suchen Lieb' und Gunst mit tausend falschen Worten,
  Du ohne Mund- und Augen-Kunst, bist wert an allen Orten.
  Du bist als wie die Ros' im Wald: sie weiß nichts von ihrer Blüte,
  Doch jedem, der vorüberwallt, erfreut sie das Gemüte.

Coroncina del mio cuore, tu sei d'oro...
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Coroncina del mio cuore, tu sei d'oro puro,
 in mezzo a tutte le altre tu mi sei più cara di tutte.
 Le altre vogliono essere furbe, tu sei dolce e tranquilla,
 che ogni cuore si rallegri di te è tuo destino, non tua volontà.
Le altre cercano amore e favori con mille false parole,
 tu senza artificio di parole e sguardi sei degna in ogni luogo.
 Tu sei come la rosa nel bosco, che non sa nulla della sua fioritura,
 ma a chiunque passi, rallegra l'anima.
