Cora an die Sonne
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Nach so vielen trüben Tagen
Send' uns wiederum einmal,
Mitleidsvoll für unsre Klagen,
Einen sanften milden Strahl.

Liebe Sonne! trink den Regen,
Der herab zu stürzen dräut,
Deine Strahlen sind uns Segen,
Deine Blicke - Seligkeit.

Schein', ach, scheine, liebe Sonne!
Jede Freude dank' ich dir;
Alle [Geists-]1 und Herzenswonne,
Licht und Wärme kommt von dir.

Cora au soleil
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Après tant de jours lugubres
Envoie-nous une fois de plus,
Plein de pour nos plaintes,
Un rayon de compassion tendre et doux.

Cher soleil ! bois la pluie
Qui menace de se déverser ;
Tes rayons sont une bénédiction pour nous,
Ton regard, un bonheur.

Brille, ah, brille, cher soleil !
Je te remercie pour chaque joie ;
Toute joie de l'esprit et du cœur,
Lumière et chaleur, viennent de toi.
