Original text and translations

Dutch.png Dutch text

1. Een meisje teder zat bij 't beekje neder.
Door diepe smart heur harte was bevangen.
En 't suizend windje in 't riet
wordt deelnoot van 't verdriet.

2. Haar eind'loos smeken
deed heur wang verbleken.
Ik ben alleen hier op de wijde wereld.
Waarom, o dood, gemard.
Kom, eindig mijne smart.

1. A girl, young in years, sat by the brook.
Her heart was full of grief.
The wind whispering in the reeds
was privy to her sorrow.

2. Her long lament
made her cheeks pale.
'I am alone in this wide world.
Why, death, do you delay?
Come, end my suffering.'
