An die Geliebte

Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
O daß ich dir vom stillen Auge
In seinem liebevollen Schein,
Die Thräne von der Wange sauge,
Eh' sie die Erde trinket ein.

Wohl hält sie zögernd auf der Wange,
Und will sich heiß der Treue weihn;
Nun ich sie so im Kuß empfange,
Nun sind auch deine Schmerzen mein.

Aan de beminde
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
O, dat ik uit je stille ogen,
Waarin de glans van liefde blinkt,
Het traantje van je wang mag zuigen,
Voordat de aarde het opdrinkt!

Wel hangt het weif'lend op je wangen.
Om gloeiend blijk van trouw te zijn.
Nu ik het kussend op mag vangen,
Nu is ook jouw verdriet 't mijn'.
