[Hör]1 es klagt die Flöte wieder
Und die kühlen [Brunnen]2 rauschen,
Golden wehn die Töne nieder,
Stille, [stille]3, laß uns lauschen!

Holdes Bitten, mild Verlangen,
[Wie es süß zum Herzen spricht]4!
Durch die Nacht die mich umfangen,
Blickt zu mir der Töne Licht.

Avondserenade
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Hoor, daar klaagt die fluit al weer
en de koele bronnen fluisteren.
Glanzend dalen haar tonen neer
stil nu, stil nu, laten wij luisteren.

Tere vragen, stil verlangen
komen nu het hart bewonen.
Hield de nacht mij eerst bevangen
kijkt naar mij het licht der tonen.
