Cora an die Sonne
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Nach so vielen trüben Tagen
Send' uns wiederum einmal,
Mitleidsvoll für unsre Klagen,
Einen sanften milden Strahl.

Liebe Sonne! trink den Regen,
Der herab zu stürzen dräut,
Deine Strahlen sind uns Segen,
Deine Blicke - Seligkeit.

Schein', ach, scheine, liebe Sonne!
Jede Freude dank' ich dir;
Alle [Geists-]1 und Herzenswonne,
Licht und Wärme kommt von dir.

Cora tot de zon
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Na zo vele somb're dagen
Zend ons wederom eenmaal,
Medelevend met ons klagen,
Eindelijk een milde straal.
 
Lieve zon, ja, drink de regen
Die weer neer te plenzen dreigt,
Want jouw stralen zijn ons zegen,
En jouw blikken zaligheid.
 
Schijn, ach, schijn toch, bron van leven!
Elke vreugde dank ik jou;
Al wat geest en hart doet zweven,
Licht en warmte komt van jou.
