Am Wildbach die Weiden
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Am Wildbach die Weiden, 
Die schwanken Tag und Nacht. 
Die Liebe von uns beiden
Hat Gott so fest gemacht. 

Am Wildbach die Weiden, 
Die haben nicht Wort und Ton. 
Wenn sich die Augen besprechen, 
So wissen die Herzen davon.

The willows on the Wildbach
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
The willows on the Wildbach
Sway constantly both night and day.
The love between us two
Was made just as firm by God. 

The willows on the Wildbach
Do not have words or sounds.
When our eyes speak to each other,
Our hearts will also know of it.
