1. Du heilest Den und tröstest Jenen,
o Quell, so hör auch meinen auch meinen Schmerz!
Ich klage dir mit bittern Tränen
ein hartes, kaltes Mädchenherz.

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

1.  You heal this one and soothe another,
O spring, relieve my burning pain.
My plaint with bitter tears I offer,
a maiden's cold, hard heart to gain.

2. Only to soften, set it glowing,
wouldbe for be for you an easy an easy trick;
In you hen can be set roasting;
why ever not a sweet young chich?
