An Minna

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nur bei dir, an deinem Herzen,
fliehen Sorge, Gram und Schmerzen
und die Stifterin der Leiden,
Uns' re Liebe schafft uns Freuden,
die kein Gott mir ohne dich,
die kein Gott dir ohne mich schaffen,
keiner geben kann,
du mein Weib und ich dein Mann.

Aan Minna

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

Slechts bij jou, bij jou aan ’t harte
Vluchten zorg, verdriet en smarten,
En de stichtster van het lijden,
Onze liefde, maakt ons blijde,
Wat geen God mij zonder jou,
Wat geen God jou zonder mij
Schenken, wat geen geven kan,
Jij mijn vrouw en ik jouw man.
