In Gottes Namen aufstehn

Language: German (Deutsch)

In Gottes Namen aufstehn,
gegen Gott gehen,
gegen Gott treten,
zum himmlischen Vater beten,
daß er uns verleih
lieb Englein drei:
der erste, der uns weist,
der zweite, der uns speist,
der dritt, der uns behüt und bewahrt,
daß uns an Leib und Seel nichts widerfahrt.

Translation(s): ENG FRE

Au nom de Dieu se lever

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

Au nom de Dieu se lever,
marcher vers Dieu,
s'avancer vers Dieu,
prier le Père céleste
qu'il nous accorde
trois chers petits anges :
le premier, pour nous guider,
le deuxième, pour nous nourrir,
le troisième, pour nous protéger et nous garder
pour qu'à notre corps et notre âme, rien de mal n'arrive.
