Neue Liebe
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE FRE ITA
Kann auch ein Mensch des andern auf der Erde
Ganz wie er möchte, sein?
-- In langer Nacht bedacht' ich mir's, und mußte sagen, nein!
 
So kann ich niemands heißen auf der Erde,
Und niemand wäre mein?
-- Aus Finsternißen hell in mir aufzückt ein Freudenschein:
 
Sollt' ich mit Gott nicht können sein,
So wie ich möchte, Mein und Dein?
Was hielte mich, daß ich's nicht heute werde?
 
Ein süßes Schrecken geht durch mein Gebein!
Mich wundert, daß es mir ein Wunder wollte sein,
Gott selbst zu eigen haben auf der Erde!

Nuovo amore
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
In questo mondo può un essere all'altro
appartenere, come vorrebbe?
Per tutta la notte ci ho pensato, e ho dovuto rispondere, no!

Allora non posso dirmi di nessuno sulla terra,
e nessuno potrebbe essere mio?
Dalle tenebre, chiaro dentro me, si accende un raggio di gioia:

Non potrei essere con Dio,
come vorrei, Lui mio, io Suo?
Cosa potrebbe trattenermi dall'esserlo già oggi?

Un dolce brivido mi percorre il corpo!
Mi meraviglia, che per me sia un miracolo,
possedere Dio stesso su questa terra!
