Ist dir ein getreues liebevolles Kind beschert

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

Ist dir ein getreues
liebevolles Kind beschert,
fest am Herzen halt' es, 
fühle seinen ganzen Wert.

Ruhst du ihm am Busen,
hangst du ihm am Munde süß,
frage nicht, was Edens
Wonnesaal für Heil gewährt!

Dieser Erde Dunkel,
weiß davon ein liebend Herz?
Nachtigallenaugen ist
die ganze Welt verklärt.
