In diesem Wetter, in diesem Braus,
Nie hätt' ich gesendet die Kinder hinaus;
Man hat sie getragen hinaus,
Ich durfte nichts dazu sagen!

In diesem Wetter, in diesem Saus,
Nie hätt' ich gelassen die Kinder hinaus,
Ich fürchtete sie erkranken;
Das sind nun eitle Gedanken.

In diesem Wetter, in diesem Graus,
Nie hätt' ich gelassen die Kinder hinaus;
Ich sorgte, sie stürben morgen,
Das ist nun nicht zu besorgen.

In diesem Wetter, in diesem Graus!
Nie hätt' ich gesendet die Kinder hinaus!
Man hat sie hinaus getragen,
ich durfte nichts dazu sagen!

In diesem Wetter, in diesem Saus, in diesem Braus,
Sie ruh'n als wie in der Mutter Haus,
Von keinem Sturm erschrecket,
Von Gottes Hand bedecket.

Con questo tempo
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Con questo tempo, con questa pioggia scrosciante,
non avrei mai mandato fuori i bambini;
li hanno portati fuori, 
non ho potuto dire niente!

Con questo tempo, con questo vento di bufera,
non avrei mai lasciato uscire i bambini,
avevo paura che si ammalassero;
questi pensieri ora sono inutili.

Con questo tempo, con questo orrore,
non avrei mai lasciato uscire i bambini;
mi preoccupavo che morissero domani,
ora non c'è più niente di cui aver paura.

Con questo tempo, con questo orrore!
non avrei mai mandato fuori i bambini!
Li hanno portati fuori, 
non ho potuto dire niente!

Con questo tempo, con questa pioggia, con questa bufera,
riposano come in casa della mamma,
non li spaventa nessuna tempesta,
li protegge la mano di Dio.
