Fein Rößlein, ich
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Fein Rößlein, ich 
Beschlage dich,
Sei frisch und fromm,
Und wieder komm!

Trag deinen Herrn
Stets treu dem Stern,
Der seiner Bahn
Hell glänzt voran.

Bergab, bergauf
Mach flinken Lauf,
Leicht wie die Luft
Durch Strom und Kluft!

Trag auf dem Ritt
Mit jedem Tritt
Den Reiter du
Dem Himmel zu!

Nun Rößlein, ich
Beschlage dich,
Sei frisch und fromm,
Und wieder komm!

R. Schumann sets stanzas 1-2, 4-5

Xamós petit cavall
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Xamós petit cavall,
jo et ferro,
sigues fort i dòcil
i torna a venir!

Porta el teu amo
fidelment vers l’estrella
que al davant del seu camí
clara resplendeix.

Costa avall, costa amunt,
corre llambresc,
lleuger com l’aire,
travessant rius i avencs!

Amb la teva cavalcada,
a cada pas,
porta el teu genet
vers el cel!

Ara petit cavall,
jo et ferro,
sigues fort i dòcil
i torna a venir!
