Mutter, Mutter! glaube nicht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mutter, Mutter! glaube nicht,
Weil ich ihn lieb' also sehr,
Daß nun Liebe mir gebricht,
Dich zu lieben wie vorher.

Mutter, Mutter! seit ich ihn
Liebe, lieb' ich erst dich sehr.
Laß mich an mein Herz dich zieh'n
Und dich küssen, wie mich er.

Mutter, Mutter! seit ich ihn
Liebe, lieb' ich erst dich ganz,
Daß du mir das Sein verlieh'n,
Das mir ward zu solchem Glanz.

Lied van de bruid I

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Moeder, moeder, denk toch niet,
Nu ik hem bemin zozeer,
Dat die liefde mij verbiedt
Jou te koest'ren, als weleer.
Moeder, moeder, sinds ik hem liefheb,
Ben 'k met jou zo blij!
Kom, ik druk je aan mijn hart
En ik kus je, als hij mij!
Moeder, moeder, sinds ik hem liefheb,
Hou 'k van jou totaal,
Dat je mij 't bestaan ooit gaf,
Waardoor ik nu heerlijk straal.
