Dein ist mein Herz

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

Dein ist mein Herz, mein Schmerz dein eigen,
Und alle Freuden, die es sprengen,
Dein ist der Wald mit allen Zweigen,
Den Blüten allen und Gesängen.

Das Liebste, was ich mag erbeuten
Mit Liedern, die mein Herz entführten,
Ist mir ein Wort, daß sie dich freuten,
Ein stummer Blick, daß sie dich rührten.

Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

Mon cœur est tien

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

Mon cœur est tien, ma douleur est à toi,
Et toute la joie qui jaillit,
À toi est la forêt avec tous ses branches,
Avec tous ses fleurs et chants.

Le mieux que je puisse attraper
Avec des chants qui ravissaient mon cœur,
Est un mot pour moi, qu'ils te réjouissaient,
Un regard muet, qu'ils t'émouvaient.
