Wo ist ein so herrlich Volk, zu dem...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

Wo ist ein so herrlich Volk, zu dem Götter also nahe sich tun
als der Herr, unser Gott, so oft wir ihn anrufen.
Hüte dich nur und bewahre deine Seele wohl,
dass du nicht vergessest der Geschichten,
die deine Augen gesehen haben,
und dass sie nicht aus deinem Herzen kommen
alle dein Leben lang.
Und sollst deinen Kindern 
und Kindeskindern kund tun. Amen.

Waar is zo ‘n gelukkig volk, waaraan...

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

Waar is zo ‘n gelukkig volk, waaraan goden zich verbinden zo nauw 
als de Heer, onze God, zo vaak wij om hem roepen?
Neem u in acht en bewaar toch steeds uw ziel heel goed, 
om nooit te vergeten wat geschied is, 
waarvan uw ogen getuigen waren,
En laat het nimmer uit uw hart verdwijnen, 
nimmer uw leven lang.
En gij [moet het uw]1 kinderen 
en kleinkind’ren2 leren. Amen.
