Es ist gut

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bei Mondenschein im Paradeis
Fand Jehovah im Schlafe tief
Adam versunken, legte leis
Zur Seit ein Evchen, das auch entschlief.
Da lagen nun in Erdeschranken
Gottes zwei lieblichste Gedanken--
"Gut!!!" rief er sich zum Meisterlohn,
Er ging sogar nicht gern davon.

Kein Wunder, daß es uns berückt,
Wenn Auge frisch in Auge blickt,
Als hätten wir's so weit gebracht,
Bei dem zu sein, der uns gedacht.
Und ruft er uns, wohlan, es sei!
Nur, das beding ich, alle zwei!
Dich halten dieser Arme Schranken,
Liebster von allen Gottesgedanken.

C'est bien

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

Au clair de lune au paradis
Yéovah trouva dans un sommeil profond
Adam englouti, doucement il plaça
À ses côtés une petite Ève, qui s'endormit aussi.
Alors reposaient dans leurs liens terrestres
Deux des pensées les plus charmantes de Dieu.
"Bien !!!" cria-t-il, en récompense du maître,
Il ne s'en alla même pas volontiers.

Aucune merveille, qui ne nous séduise,
Quand le regard nouveau croise l'autre regard,
Comme si nous l'avions porté si loin,
Jusqu'à le voir, celui qui nous a imaginés.
Et s'il nous appelle, eh bien, soit !
Seulement, c'est ce que je demande, tous les deux ensemble !
Je te tiendrai dans ces bras,
La plus chère de toutes les pensées de Dieu.
