Wenn du, mein Liebster, steigst zum...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Wenn du, mein Liebster, steigst zum Himmel auf,
Trag' ich mein Herz dir in der Hand entgegen.
So liebevoll umarmst du mich darauf,
Dann woll'n wir uns dem Herrn zu Füßen legen.
Und sieht der Herrgott unsre Liebesschmerzen,
Macht er Ein Herz aus zwei verliebten Herzen,
Zu Einem Herzen fügt er zwei zusammen,
Im Paradies, umglänzt von Himmelsflammen.

Quand tu monteras au ciel, mon bien‑aimé

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

Quand tu monteras au ciel, mon bien-aimé,
Je te porterai mon cœur dans ma main.
Si plein d'amour tu m'embrasseras,
Alors nous nous allongerons aux pieds du Seigneur.
Et le Seigneur Dieu verra notre chagrin d'amour,
Il fera un cœur unique des deux cœurs aimants,
Il les réunira tous les deux pour en faire un seul,
Au paradis, brillant des flammes du ciel.
