Horch, der Wind klagt in den Zweigen...
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Hungarian (Magyar) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Horch, der Wind klagt in den Zweigen traurig sacht;
süßes Lieb, wir müssen Scheiden: gute Nacht.
Ach wie gern in deinen Armen ruhte ich,
doch die Trennungsstunde naht, Gott schütze dich.

Dunkel ist die Nacht, kein Sternlein spendet Licht;
süßes Lieb vertrau auf Gott und weine nicht;
führt der liebe Gott mich einst zu dir zurück,
bleiben ewig wir vereint in Liebesglück.

Écoute, le vent gémit dans les branches...
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Écoute, le vent gémit dans les branches tristement et doucement ;
Doux amour, nous devons nous séparer : bonne nuit.
Ah, comme je reposais volontiers dans tes bras,
Mais l'heure de la séparation approche, Dieu te protège.

Sombre est la nuit, aucune petite étoile ne donne de lumière ;
Doux amour, fais confiance à Dieu et ne pleure pas ;
Le bon Dieu me ramènera un jour vers toi,
Nous resterons unis pour toujours dans la joie de l'amour.
