Sinke, liebe Sonne, sinke!
Ende deinen trüben Lauf,
Und an deine Stelle winke
Bald den Mond herauf.

Herrlicher und schöner dringe
Aber Morgen dann herfür,
Liebe Sonn'! und mit dir bringe
Meinen Lieben mir.

Aan de zon
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Daal maar, lieve zon, ja daal maar!
Eindig je bewolkte loop,
En als je vervanger haal maar
Gauw de maan omhoog.
 
Heerlijker en mooier kom dan
Morgen echter weer terug,
Lieve zon! En breng mijn droomman
Dan weer mee heel vlug.
