So hab' ich doch die ganze Woche
Mein feines Liebchen nicht geseh'n, 
Ich sah es an einem Sonntag
Wohl vor der Türe steh'n:
  Das tausendschöne Jungfräulein,
  Das tausendschöne Herzelein,
  Wollte Gott, wollte Gott, ich wär' heute bei ihr!

So will mir doch die ganze Woche
Das Lachen nicht vergeh'n, 
Ich sah es an einem Sonntag
 Wohl in die Kirche geh'n: 
  Das tausendschöne Jungfräulein,
  Das tausendschöne Herzelein,
  Wollte Gott, wollte Gott, ich wär' heute bei ihr!

Dimanche
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ainsi donc, de toute la semaine
Je n'ai pas vu ma belle bien-aimée.
Je l'ai vue un dimanche
Debout devant sa porte :
   La mille fois jolie jeune demoiselle,
   Le mille fois joli petit cœur,
   Dieu veuille, Dieu veuille qu'aujoud'hui je sois près d'elle !

 Ainsi donc, de toute la semaine
Je n'ai pas rencontré un sourire.
Je l'ai vue un dimanche
Aller à l'église :
   La mille fois jolie jeune demoiselle,
   Le mille fois joli petit cœur,
   Dieu veuille, Dieu veuille qu'aujoud'hui je sois près d'elle !
