Mein Weg geht jetzt vorüber

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Weg geht jetzt vorüber,
O Welt, was acht' ich dein;
der Himmel ist mir lieber
da muß ich fahren ein.

Mich nicht zu sehr beladen,
weil ich wegfertig bin,
in Gottes Fried' und Gnaden
fahr' ich mit Freud' dahin.

Mon chemin est fini maintenant

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

Mon chemin est fini maintenant,
ô monde, quelle que soit l'estime que j'aie pour toi,
le ciel m'est plus cher,
c'est là que je dois aller.

Je ne me charge pas trop,
parce que je suis prêt à partir,
dans la paix et le grâce de Dieu
je vais avec la joie en moi.
