German.png German text

Du heilest Den und tröstest Jenen,
O Quell, so hör auch meinen schmerz!
Ich klage dir mit bittern Tränen
Ein hartes, kaltes Mädchenherz.

Es zu erweichen, zu durchglühen,
dir ist es eine leichte Pflicht;
man kann ja Hühner in dir brühen,
warum ein junges Gänschen nicht?

You heal this one and comfort that one,
O spring, then listen to my pain, too!
I complain to you, with bitter tears,
Of the hard, cold heart of a girl.

To soften it, to inspire it
Would be easy for you;
One can baste a hen in you,
Why not a naïve young chick?
