Manche Thrän' aus meinen Augen
Ist gefallen in den Schnee;
Seine kalten Flocken saugen
Durstig ein das heiße Weh.

[Wann]1 die Gräser sprossen wollen,
Weht daher ein lauer Wind,
Und das Eis zerspringt in Schollen,
Und der weiche Schnee zerrinnt.

Schnee, du weißt von meinem Sehnen:
[Sag mir, wohin]2 geht dein Lauf?
Folge nach nur meinen Thränen,
Nimmt dich bald das Bächlein auf.

Wirst mit ihm die Stadt durchziehen,
Muntre Straßen ein und aus:
Fühlst du meine Thränen glühen,
Da ist meiner Liebsten Haus.

El corrent
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Moltes llàgrimes dels meus ulls
han caigut damunt la neu;
els seus glaçats flocs xuclen,
sedegosos, el meu ardent dolor. 

Quan l'herba vulgui començar a brotar,
llavors bufarà d'enllà un tebi oratge,
i el gel s'esberlarà en trossos,
la tova neu es fondrà. 

Neu, tu coneixes el meu anhel,
digues-me, vers on anirà  el teu corrent?
Segueix tan sols les meves llàgrimes,
el rierol les recollirà  ben aviat. 

Amb ell creuaràs la ciutat,
per carrers plens de vida;
allà on sentis bleir les meves llàgrimes,
trobaràs la casa de la meva estimada.
