Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
Sinke, liebe Sonne, sinke!
Ende deinen trüben Lauf,
Und an deine Stelle winke
Bald den Mond herauf.

Herrlich und schöner dringe
Aber Morgen dann herfür,
Liebe Sonn'! und mit dir bringe
Meinen Lieben mir.

Al sole
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Tramonta, mio amato sole, tramonta!
Cessa il tuo triste percorso,
e al tuo posto comanda
alla luna di sorgere presto.

Ma più bello e glorioso, al mattino,
domani nuovamente risorgi,
mio amato sole! e per mano
a me il mio amore conduci.
