Auf ein altes Bild

Language: German (Deutsch)

In grüner Landschaft Sommerflor,
Bei kühlem Wasser, Schilf, und Rohr,
Schau, wie das Knäblein Sündelos
Frei spielet auf der Jungfrau Schoß!
Und dort im Walde wonnesam,
Ach, grünet schon des Kreuzes Stamm!

Sur un tableau ancien

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

Dans un vert paysage d'été en fleurs,
près d'une onde fraîche, avec roseaux et joncs,
regarde comme le Tout petit sans péché
joue librement sur le sein de la Vierge !
Et, là-bas, dans cette si belle forêt,
ah, verdit déjà le bois de la Croix !
