Schmerzen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE ITA NOR NYN RUS
Sonne, weinest jeden Abend
Dir die schönen Augen rot,
Wenn im Meeresspiegel badend
Dich erreicht der frühe Tod;

Doch erstehst in alter Pracht,
Glorie der düstren Welt,
Du am Morgen neu erwacht,
Wie ein stolzer Siegesheld!

Ach, wie sollte ich da klagen,
Wie, mein Herz, so schwer dich sehn,
Muß die Sonne selbst verzagen,
Muß die Sonne untergehn?

Und gebieret Tod nur Leben,
Geben Schmerzen Wonne nur:
O wie dank ich, daß gegeben
Solche Schmerzen mir Natur!

Sorg
Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Sol, du gret kvar kveld
dei vakre augo dine raude.
Når du badar der i sjøen
glir du inn i jordisk død.

Men du stig opp igjen i gamal prakt,
glorien til den mørke verd,
om morgonen: vaken på ny
som ein stolt og sigrande helt!

Så då, kvifor må eg klage?
Kvifor er mitt hjarte tungt?
Om sola sjølv må orvonast,
om sola sjølv må gå under?

Og om døden føder liv,
og frå smerta veks ei lukke,
så er eg naturen takksam
som så mykje smerte gir.
