An meinem Herzen, an meiner Brust

Language: German (Deutsch)

An meinem Herzen, an meiner Brust,
Du meine Wonne, du meine Lust!

Das Glück ist die Liebe, die Lieb' ist das Glück,
Ich [hab' es]1 gesagt und nehm's nicht zurück.

Hab' [überglücklich]2 mich geschätzt
Bin überglücklich aber jetzt.

Nur die da säugt, nur die da liebt
Das Kind, dem sie die Nahrung giebt;

Nur eine Mutter weiß allein,
Was lieben heißt und glücklich sein.

O, wie bedaur' ich doch den Mann,
Der Mutterglück nicht fühlen kann!

[Du schauest mich an und lächelst dazu,
Du lieber, lieber Engel, du!]3

An meinem Herzen, an meiner Brust,
Du meine Wonne, du meine Lust!

Hier in mijn armen, hier aan mijn borst

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

Hier in mijn armen, hier aan mijn borst,
Jij, mijn verrukking, mijn kleine vorst!

't Geluk is de liefde, de liefd' is geluk,
Ik heb 't gezegd en neem 't niet terug.
 
'k Was te uitbundig, naar ik dacht,
Nu dolgelukkig onverwacht.

Slechts zij die zoogt, slechts die bemint
Het kind dat bij haar voeding vindt,

Alleen een moeder weet pas echt
Wat liefde is, wat weelde zegt.
 
O, wat beklaag ik toch de man
Die moedergeluk niet voelen kan!

Jij, lieve lieve engel, jij,
Jij kijkt mij aan en glimlacht daarbij1!
