Beglückt, beglückt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Beglückt, beglückt,
Wer dich erblickt,
Und deinen Himmel trinket;
[Wem]1 dein Gesicht
Voll Engellicht
Den Gruß des Friedens winket.

Ein süsser Blick,
Ein Wink, ein Nick,
Glänzt mir wie Frühlingssonnen;
Den ganzen Tag
Sinn' ich ihm nach,
Und schweb' in Himmelswonnen.

Dein holdes Bild
Führt mich so mild
An sanfter Blumenkette;
In meinem Arm
Erwacht es warm,
Und geht mit mir zu Bette.

Beglückt, beglückt,
Wer dich erblickt,
Und deinen Himmel trinket;
[Wen]2 süsser Blick
Und Wink und Nick
Zum süssern Kusse winket.

De minnaar

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

Geniet, geniet,
Wie jou aanziet,
Jouw hemel in mag drinken,
Als jouw gezicht
Vol engellicht
Zijn vredegroet laat blinken.
 
Een lieve blik,
Een wenk, een knik
Warmt mij als lentezonnen;
De hele dag
Ben ik van slag,
Mijn hemel is begonnen.
 
Jouw lieve beeld
Voert mij zo mild
Langs zachte bloemenkusten;
En in mijn arm
Ontwaakt het warm
En gaat met mij ter ruste.
 
Geniet, geniet,
Wie jou aanziet,
En in jouw hemel aanligt,
Wie zoete blik
En wenk en knik
Tot zoeter kussen nodigt.
