Ein Lied
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Ich hab' ein Lied gesungen,
Das hat so munter geschallt.
Nun ist es längst verklungen,
In trübe Nacht verhallt.

Nur manchmal will's mir scheinen,
Als hört' ich's bang und schwer
Wie ein verstohl'nes Weinen
Aus weiter Ferne her.

Un chant
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
J'ai chanté un chant
Qui résonnait si joyeusement.
Maintenant cela fait longtemps qu'il a cessé de retentir
Au loin dans la nuit trouble.
Seulement parfois il me semble
Que je l'entends inquiet et lourd
Comme un pleur furtif
Venant du lointain.
