Wo ist ein so herrlich Volk, zu dem...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

Wo ist ein so herrlich Volk, zu dem Götter also nahe sich tun
als der Herr, unser Gott, so oft wir ihn anrufen.
Hüte dich nur und bewahre deine Seele wohl,
dass du nicht vergessest der Geschichten,
die deine Augen gesehen haben,
und dass sie nicht aus deinem Herzen kommen
alle dein Leben lang.
Und sollst deinen Kindern 
und Kindeskindern kund tun. Amen.

Quel est le peuple si puissant dont les...

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Quel est le peuple si puissant dont les dieux se font aussi proches
que le Seigneur, notre Dieu, aussi souvent que nous l'invoquons.
Seulement, prends garde à toi et veille bien sur ton âme,
De ne pas oublier les choses
que tes yeux ont vues,
et qu'elles n'aillent pas hors de ton cœur
durant toute ta vie.
Et fais-le savoir à tes enfants 
et aux enfants de tes enfants. Amen.
