So wahr die Sonne scheinet
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA POR POR
So wahr die Sonne scheinet,
So wahr die Wolke weinet1,
So wahr die Flamme sprüht,
So wahr der Frühling blüht;
So wahr hab' ich empfunden,
Wie ich dich halt' umwunden:
Du liebst mich, wie ich dich,
Dich lieb' ich, wie du mich.

Die Sonne mag verscheinen,
Die Wolke nicht mehr weinen,
Die Flamme mag versprühn,
Der Frühling nicht mehr blühn!
Wir wollen uns umwinden
Und immer so empfinden;
Du liebst mich, wie ich dich,
Dich lieb' ich, wie du mich.

Tan cert com surt el sol
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Tan cert com surt el sol,
tan cert com ploren els núvols,
tan cert com la flama espurneja,
tan cert com floreix la primavera;
tan cert com he sentit
al tenir-te en els meus braços:
és que tu m’estimes, com jo a tu,
que jo t’estimo, com tu a mi.

El sol pot deixar de brillar,
els núvols deixar de plorar,
la flama apagar-se,
la primavera deixar de florir!
Nosaltres volem abraçar-nos
i sentir-nos sempre així;
que tu m’estimes, com jo a tu,
que jo t’estimo, com tu a mi.
