In der Früh, in der Früh, wenn die Sonn'...

Language: German (Deutsch)

In der Früh, in der Früh, wenn die [Sonn']1 erwacht,
[Von dem Fenster bieg']2 ich die Reben,
Hab' geträumet von dir [wohl]3 die ganze Nacht.
Grüß dich Gott, grüß dich Gott, du mein Leben!

Über Tag, über Tag, was ich schaff' und tu,
Blick ich hundert Mal um die Reben,
Denn mein Sinnen ist dein und mein Denken bist du,
Grüß dich Gott, grüß dich Gott, du mein Leben!

Und [zu Nacht, und zu]4 Nacht, bei der Sterne Schein,
Schlägt der Wind [mir]3 an's Fenster die Reben,
Wach ich auf, denk' ich dein, über's Jahr bist du mein,
[Grüß dich Gott, grüß dich Gott, du mein Leben]5!

Nuit et jour

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

Dans le matin, dans le matin, quand le soleil se réveille,
De la fenêtre je courbe la vigne,
J'ai rêvé de toi toute la nuit.
Bonjour Dieu, bonjour Dieu, tu es ma vie.

Tout le jour, tout le jour, quoi que je fasse,
Je regarde cent fois à travers la vigne,
Mes sens sont tiens et mes pensées sont tiennes
Bonjour Dieu, bonjour Dieu, tu es ma vie.

Toute la nuit, toute la nuit, à la lumière des étoiles,
Le vent frappe la vigne à la fenêtre,
Je me réveille, je pense à toi, tu es à moi toute l'année.
Bonjour Dieu, bonjour Dieu, tu es ma vie.
