Original text and translations

German.png German text

Schwarzer Wald, dein Schatten ist so düster!
Armes Herz, dein Leiden ist so drückend!
Was dir einzig wert, es steht vor Augen;
ewig untersagt ist Huldvereinung.

German text by Georg Friedrich Daumer (1800-1875)

Based on a text in Serbian by Anonymous/Unidentified Artist, [text unavailable]

English.png English translation

Dark forest, your shade is so gloomy!
Poor heart, your sorrow presses so heavily!
The only thing valuable to you is standing before your eyes;
eternally forbidden is that union with love.
