Mühvoll komm' ich und beladen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mühvoll komm' ich und beladen,
Nimm mich an, du Hort der Gnaden!
 
Sieh, ich komm' in Thränen heiß
Mit demüthiger Geberde,
Dunkel ganz vom Staub der Erde.
Du nur schaffest, daß ich weiß
Wie das Vließ der Lämmer werde.
Tilgen willst du ja den Schaden
Dem, der reuig dich umfaßt;
Nimm denn, Herr, von mir die Last,
Mühvoll komm' ich und beladen.
 
Laß mich flehend vor dir knie'n,
Daß ich über deine Füße
Nardenduft und Thränen gieße,
Gleich dem Weib, dem du verzieh'n,
Bis die Schuld wie Rauch zerfließe.
Der den Schächer du geladen:
"Heute noch in Edens Bann
Wirst du sein!" o nimm mich an,
Nimm mich an, du Hort der Gnaden!

Je suis venue à grand peine et accablée

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

Je suis venue à grand peine et accablée,
Reçois-moi, abri de la grâce !

Regarde, je viens avec des larmes chaudes
Et des gestes modestes,
Toute noire de la poussière de la terre.
Toi seul peut faire que je devienne blanche
Comme la toison d'un agneau.
Tu effaceras les pertes
De celui qui repentant t'embrasse ;
Alors, Seigneur, prends-moi ma charge,
Je suis venue à grand peine et accablée.

Laisse-moi en t'implorant m'agenouiller devant toi,
Que sur tes pieds
Je verse le parfum du nard et mes larmes,
Comme la femme à qui tu as pardonné,
Jusqu'à ce que ma faute disparaisse comme de la fumée,
Toi qui as invité le Larron :
« Aujourd'hui tu seras 
dans le royaume du Paradis ! »
Oh, reçois-moi, abri de la grâce !
