Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Wer sehen will zween lebendige Brunnen,
Der soll mein' zwei betrübte Augen seh'n,
Die mir vor Weinen schier sind ausgerunnen.

Wer sehen will viel groß' und tiefe Wunden,
Der soll mein sehr verwund'tes Herz besehen,
So hat mich Liebe verwund't im tiefsten Grunde.

Who wishes to see two living fountains
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Who wishes to see two living fountains,
Should look at my two sad eyes,
Which have nearly run dry from weeping.

Who wishes to see many great and deep wounds,
Should peer into my injured heart:
So has Love wounded me to my deepest core.
