O Sonne, liebe Sonne,
Verdecke deinen Pfad,
Wer kann den Glanz ermessen,
Wer kann den Glanz vergessen,
Wenn nun der Winter naht.
 
O Sonne, liebe Sonne,
Verdecke nun dein Licht!
Die Lieb' mit ihrem Blicke,
Die Lieb' mit ihrem Glücke,
Ach, du erreichst sie nicht!

Ô soleil, cher soleil
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ô soleil, cher soleil,
Cache ton chemin,
Qui peut mesurer l'éclat,
Qui peut oublier l'éclat,
Quand l'hiver approche.

Ô soleil, cher soleil,
Cache maintenant ta lumière !
L'amour avec son regard,
L'amour avec son bonheur,
Ah, tu ne peux l'atteindre !
