Komm, und senke die umflorten Schwingen,
Süßer Schlummer, auf den müden Blick!
Segner! Freund! in deinen Armen dringen
Trost und Balsam auf's verlorne Glück.

Au sommeil
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Viens, et baisse le voile de tes ailes
Doux sommeil, sur mes yeux fatigués !
Sauveur ! Ami ! dans tes bras arrivent
Le réconfort et le baume pour mon bonheur perdu.
