Ich hör' meinen Schatz
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Ich hör' meinen Schatz,
Den Hammer er schwinget,
Das rauschet, das klinget,
Das dringt in die Weite,
Wie Glockengeläute,
Durch Gassen und Platz.

Am schwarzen Kamin,
Da sitzet mein Lieber,
Doch geh' ich vorüber,
Die Bälge dann sausen,
Die Flammen aufbrausen
Und lodern um ihn.

Ascolto il mio tesoro
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ascolto il mio tesoro,
mentre batte il martello,
che forte risuona,
e da lontano si sente
come un suono di campane,
per vicoli e piazze.
 
Presso il nero camino,
è il posto del mio amore,
gli passo vicino,
mentre sibilano i mantici,
e divampa la fiamma,
ardendo a lui intorno.
