Allnächtlich im Traume seh' ich dich
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT DUT ENG FIN FRE GRE HEB ITA SPA
Allnächtlich im Traume seh' ich dich
Und sehe dich freundlich grüßen,
Und laut aufweinend stürz' ich mich
Zu deinen süßen Füßen.

Du [siehst]1 mich an wehmütiglich
Und schüttelst das blonde Köpfchen;
Aus deinen Augen schleichen sich  
Die Perlentränentröpfchen.

Du [sagst]2 mir heimlich ein leises Wort
Und gibst mir den Strauß von Zypressen.
Ich wache auf, und der Strauß ist fort,
[Und das]3 Wort hab' ich vergessen.

Chaque nuit je revois tes charmes
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Chaque nuit je revois tes charmes
Dans un rêve où tu me souris;
Je tombe à genoux, et mes larmes
Vont arroser tes pieds chéris.

Les yeux en pleurs, dans les ténèbres
Secouant l'or de tes cheveux
Tu me tends des bouquets funèbres
Que saisissent mes doigts nerveux.

Tu me dis tout bas à l'oreille
Un mot magique; -- ouvrant les yeux,
Je cherche en vain, quand je m'éveille,
Cyprès et mot mystérieux.
