Im Walde
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE HEB ITA NOR POR POR SPA
Es zog eine Hochzeit den Berg entlang,
Ich hörte die Vögel schlagen,
Da blitzten viel Reiter, das Waldhorn klang,
Das war ein lustiges Jagen!1

Und eh' ich's gedacht, war alles verhallt,
Die Nacht bedecket die Runde,
Nur von den Bergen [rauschet]2 der Wald
Und mich [schauert]3 im Herzensgrunde.

1 Schumann adds an additional stanza here (op.75):
Der Bräutigem küsste die blasse Braut,
die Mutter sprach leis', "Nicht klagen!"
Fort schmettert das Horn durch die Schluchten laut,
Es war ein lustiges Jagen!
2 Schumann: "noch rauschet"
3 Schumann: "schauert's"

Na floresta
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Passava um casamento pela montanha,
Eu ouvia os pássaros a cantar,
Brilhavam as armaduras, soava a trombeta
Era uma caça animada!

E antes que pudesse perceber, tudo acabou,
E a noite tudo cobriu.
Lá do alto da montanha ainda se ouvia a floresta
E do fundo do coração, estremeci.
