Comme Dieu rayonne aujourd'hui

Language: French (Français)

Comme Dieu rayonne aujourd'hui,
Comme il exulte, comme il fleurit
Parmi ces roses et ces fruits!

Comme il murmure en cette fontaine!
Ah! comme il chante en ces oiseaux...
Qu'elle est suave son haleine
Dans l'odorant printemps nouveau!

Comme il se baigne dans la lumière
Avec amour, mon jeune dieu!
Toutes les choses de la terre
Sont ses vêtements radieux.

Wie Gott heut’ leuchtet

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

Wie Gott heut’ leuchtet,
und frohlockt und blüht
in Rosen und in Früchten!

Und wie er raunt aus diesem Quell!
Und wie er singt in diesen Vögeln …
Wie süß ist doch sein Odem
im Duft des holden Lenz’!

Wie er taucht ein ins Licht 
mit Liebe, mein junger Gott!
Alles auf Erden
ist sein strahlendes Gewand.
