Ich denke dein,
[Wenn]1 durch den Hain
Der Nachtigallen
Akkorde schallen!
[Wann]2 denkst du mein?

Ich denke dein
Im Dämmerschein
Der Abendhelle
Am Schattenquelle!
Wo denkst du mein?

Ich denke dein
Mit süßer Pein,
Mit bangem Sehnen
Und heißen Thränen!
Wie denkst du mein?

[O denke mein,]3
Bis zum Verein
Auf besserm Sterne!
In jeder Ferne
Denk' ich nur dein!

A te va il mio pensiero...
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
A te va il mio pensiero
Quando nel fitto del bosco
Ascolto l'usignolo
Modulare il suo accordo!
Ma tu quando mi pensi?
 
A te va il mio pensiero
Quando il sole tramonta
Nella luce serale
Quando si allunga l'ombra!
Ma tu dove mi pensi?
 
A te va il mio pensiero
Con i più dolci tormenti
E un desiderio inquieto
E lacrime roventi!
Ma tu come mi pensi?
 
Oh pensa a me,
fino a quando saremo uniti
da un migliore destino!
Nei posti più remoti
Io penserò solo a te!
