[Komm]1, Trost der Welt, du stille Nacht!
Wie steigst du von den Bergen sacht,
Die Lüfte alle schlafen,
Ein Schiffer nur noch, wandermüd',
Singt übers Meer sein Abendlied
Zu Gottes Lob im Hafen.

Die Jahre wie die Wolken gehn
Und lassen mich hier einsam stehn,
Die Welt hat mich vergessen,
Da tratst du wunderbar zu mir,
Wenn ich beim Waldesrauschen hier
Gedankenvoll gesessen.

O Trost der Welt, du stille Nacht!
Der Tag hat mich so [müd']2 gemacht,
Das weite Meer schon dunkelt,
Laß ausruhn mich von Lust und Not,
Bis daß das ew'ge Morgenrot
Den stillen Wald durchfunkelt.

Vine, conhort del món, tu nit...
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Vine, conhort del món, tu nit silenciosa!
Que plàcida davalles de les muntanyes,
tots els ventijols dormen,
tan sols un mariner, cansat del viatge,
canta la seva cançó del vespre vers el mar,
a la lloança de Déu, des del port.

Els anys passen com els núvols
i em deixen aquí solitari,
el món s’ha oblidat de mi,
aleshores vingueres tu, meravellosa,
quan jo aquí, a la remor del bosc,
seia pensívol.

Oh, conhort del món, tu nit silenciosa!
El dia m’ha fatigat tant,
l’ampli mar s’enfosqueix,
deixa que reposi del goig i de la pena,
fins que l’aurora eterna
faci resplendir el bosc silenciós.
