Nun will die Sonn' so hell aufgehn
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG ENG FRE ITA POR SPA
Nun will die Sonn' so hell aufgehn,
Als sei kein Unglück die Nacht geschehn!
Das Unglück geschah nur mir allein!
Die Sonne, sie scheinet allgemein!

Du mußt nicht die Nacht in dir verschränken,
Mußt sie ins ew'ge Licht versenken!
Ein Lämplein verlosch in meinem Zelt!
Heil sei dem Freudenlicht der Welt!

Maintenant le soleil se lèvera aussi...
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Maintenant le soleil se lèvera aussi brillant
Comme si aucun malheur n'était arrivé cette nuit !
Le malheur est tombé sur moi seul !
Le soleil, il brille pour tous !

Tu ne dois pas garder la nuit en toi,
Tu dois la plonger dans la lumière éternelle !
Une petite lumière s'est éteinte dans ma maison !
Bienvenue à la lumière de joie dans le monde !
