Bestimmung

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Moravian (Moravština)

Du quälst dich ganz umsonst, Söhnchen, den lieben Tag,
Doch bleibt's dabei, dass ich dich nicht im Herzen trag!
Und ich werde niemals dein, nicht einmal ein Stündelein.

Wie kannst du so etwas denken, mein Mägdelein,
Du bist selber das Herze mein;
Und du mußt meine sein!
Gott gab dich nur mir allein.

Destinée

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

Tu te tortures tout à fait en vain, mon garçon, toute la journée,
Car, c'est ainsi, je ne te porte pas dans mon cœur !
Et jamais je ne serai à toi, même pas pour une petite heure.

Comment peux-tu penser une telle chose, ma petite fille,
Tu es toi-même dans mon cœur ;
Et tu dois être mienne !
Que Dieu te donne à moi seul.
