Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
Sinke, liebe Sonne, sinke!
Ende deinen trüben Lauf,
Und an deine Stelle winke
Bald den Mond herauf.

Herrlich und schöner dringe
Aber Morgen dann herfür,
Liebe Sonn'! und mit dir bringe
Meinen Lieben mir.

Au soleil
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Plonge, cher soleil, plonge !
Termine ta course terne,
Et fais signe à la lune
De vite prendre ta place.

Mais magnifique et plus beau fraie-toi un chemin
Demain matin à nouveau,
Cher soleil ! et apporte avec toi
Ma bien-aimée vers moi.
