Zur ewgen Ruh' sie sangen

Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE POR
Zur ewgen Ruh' sie sangen
die schöne Müllerin,
die Sterbeglocken klangen
noch übers Waldgut hin.

Da steht ein Fels so kühle,
wo keine Wandrer gehn,
noch einmal nach der Mühle
wollt dort der Jäger sehn.

Die Wälder rauschten leise,
sein Jagen war vorbei,
der blies so irre Weise,
als müsst' das Herz entzwei.

Und still dann in der Runde
ward's über Tal und Höh'n,
man hat seit dieser Stunde
ihn nimmermehr gesehn.

O caçador triste
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Elas cantavam pelo eterno descanso 
da bela moleira, 
soavam ainda os toques fúnebres 
Por toda a floresta.

Ali está um rochedo frio, 
onde não vai ninguém, 
mas o caçador quis ir ver
mais uma vez o moinho.

As florestas sussurravam baixinho,
a sua caçada acabou, 
ele tocou tão desnorteado,
como se o coração se partisse em dois.

E nas redondezas, 
nos montes e vales, 
Tudo ficou em silêncio.
Desde essa hora nunca mais ninguém o viu.
