Leise flehen meine Lieder
Durch die Nacht zu Dir;
In den stillen Hain hernieder,
Liebchen, komm' zu mir!

Flüsternd schlanke Wipfel rauschen
In des Mondes Licht;
Des Verräthers feindlich Lauschen
Fürchte, Holde, nicht.

Hörst die Nachtigallen schlagen?
Ach! sie flehen Dich,
Mit der Töne süßen Klagen
Flehen sie für mich.

Sie verstehn des Busens Sehnen,
Kennen Liebesschmerz,
Rühren mit den Silbertönen
Jedes weiche Herz.

Laß auch Dir die Brust bewegen,
Liebchen, höre mich!
Bebend harr' ich Dir entgegen;
Komm', beglücke mich!

小夜曲
Language: Chinese (中文)  after the German (Deutsch) 
輕輕地穿過靜夜
我的歌聲向你懇求
來到寂靜的樹林吧!
愛人,到我身旁!

修長的樹梢擺動
在月光中低語
彷彿不懷好意地偷聽
愛人,不要害怕!

你聽見夜鶯的啼聲嗎?
啊!牠們在懇求你
它們婉轉的啼聲
為我向你懇求

牠們懂人心的渴望
瞭解愛的痛苦
銀鈴般的歌聲
感動著每一顆柔軟的心

讓你的心也受感動吧!
愛人,聽我傾訴!
顫抖中  我等待你!
來吧,給我幸福!
