Herz, mein Herz, sei nicht beklommen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE ITA
Herz, mein Herz, sei nicht beklommen,
und ertrage dein Geschick,
neuer Frühling gibt zurück,
was der Winter dir genommen.

Und wie viel ist dir geblieben,
und wie schön ist noch die Welt!
Und, mein Herz, was dir gefällt,
alles, alles darfst du lieben!

Coeur, mon coeur, ne sois pas oppressé
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Coeur, mon coeur, ne sois pas oppressé
Et accepte ton destin,
Un nouveau printemps te redonne
Ce que l'hiver t'a pris.

Vois tout ce qui t'est resté
Et combien le monde est encore beau!
Et, mon coeur, tout ce qui te plaît
Tout, tu peux l'aimer!
