Ich weiß, daß mein Erlöser lebt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Aria (Tenor)
 Ich weiß, daß mein Erlöser lebt;
 Er lebt und mir zu Freude,
 Laß sein, daß ich im Leide
 In Arbeit, Müh und Plage
 Viel Stunden meiner Tage
 Muß auf der Welt verschmerzen:
 Blüht doch der Trost im Herzen.

Translation(s): ENG FRE

Je sais que mon Sauveur vit

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

Je sais que mon Sauveur vit ;
Il vit pour ma joie,
Que cela soit que moi dans la souffrance,
Dans le travail, la peine et le trouble,
Pendant beaucoup d'heures de mes jours,
Je doive résister dans ce monde ;
Pourtant la consolation fleurit dans mon cœur.
