Nicht wandle, mein Licht, dort außen
im Flurbereich!
Die Füße würden dir, die zarten,
zu naß, zu weich.

All überströmt sind dort die Wege,
die Stege dir;
so überreichlich tränte dorten
das Auge mir.

Ma lumière, ne te promènes pas là bas dehors
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ma lumière, ne te promène pas là-bas dehors,
Dans la région des champs !
Tes pieds, les délicats,
Deviendraient trop mouillés, trop tendres.

Inondés sont là-bas les chemins
Qui mènent à toi ;
Tant là-bas pleuraient
Mes yeux.
