In Grün will ich mich kleiden,
In grüne Thränenweiden,
Mein Schatz hat's Grün so gern.
Will suchen einen Zypressenhain,
Eine Haide [voll]1 grünem Rosmarein:
Mein Schatz hat's Grün so gern.

Wohlauf zum fröhlichen Jagen!
Wohlauf durch Haid' und Hagen!
Mein Schatz hat's Jagen so gern.
Das Wild, das ich jage, das ist der Tod,
Die Haide, die heiß' ich die Liebesnoth:
Mein Schatz hat's Jagen so gern.

Grabt mir ein Grab im Wasen,
Deckt mich mit grünem Rasen,
Mein Schatz hat's Grün so gern.
Kein Kreuzlein schwarz, kein Blümlein bunt,
Grün, Alles grün so rings [und rund]2!
Mein Schatz hat's Grün so gern.

사랑의 색
Language: Korean (한국어/조선말)  after the German (Deutsch) 
녹색 옷을 입으리
푸른 버들잎처럼
그녀의 녹색을.
푸른 숲을 찾아서 가리
푸른 나무가 있는 벌판을,
그녀의 녹색을.

즐겁게 사냥 떠나리!
숲으로 벌판으로!
그녀처럼 사냥을.
죽음의 사냥을 하려하네,
고통의 벌판을 누비면서
그녀처럼 사냥을.

풀밭에 묻어주오,
녹색 풀로 덮어서
그녀의 색으로.
십자가도 꽃도 없이
꼭 녹색 풀잎만으로!
그녀의 색으로.
