So wahr die Sonne scheinet
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): 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.

Tão certo como brilha o sol
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Tão certo como brilha o sol,
Tão certo como choram as nuvens,
Tão certo como as chamas,
Tão certo como floresce a primavera,
Tão certo eu senti
Como eu te segurei num abraço.
Tu me amas, como eu a ti,
Eu te amo, como tu a mim.

O sol pode parar de brilhar,
As nuvens não mais chorar,
As chamas podem apagar,
A primavera não mais florir.
Nós queremos nos envolver
E sempre assim sentir;
Tu me amas, como eu a ti,
Eu te amo, como tu a mim.
