Gott! Gott! höre meine Stimme

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gott! Gott! höre meine Stimme,
Höre gnädig auf mein Flehn!
Sieh, ich liege hier im Staube!
Soll die Hoffnung, soll der Glaube
An dein Vaterherz vergehn?

Er soll es büßen mit seinem Blute,
Was er gewagt mit [freudigem]1 Muthe,
Was er für mich und die Liebe gethan?
Sind all die Wünsche nur eitle Träume,
Zerknickt die Hoffnung die zarten Keime,
Ist Lieb' und Seligkeit nur ein Wahn?

Nein! nein! das kannst du nicht gebieten,
Das wird dein Vaterherz verhüten,
Gott, du bist meine Zuversicht!
Du wirst zwey Herzen so nicht trennen,
Die nur vereinigt schlagen können!
Nein, Vater, nein, das kannst du nicht!

Dieu, entends ma voix

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

Dieu, entends ma voix,
Entends avec indulgence ma prière !
Vois, je gis ici dans la poussière.
L'espoir et le foi doivent-ils
Mourir sur ton cœur paternel ?
Doit-il expier avec son sang
Pour ce qu'il a osé avec un esprit joyeux,
Pour ce qu'il a fait pour moi et par amour ?
Tous les souhaits ne sont-ils que de vains rêves ?
L'espoir brise-t-il la tendre graine ?
L'amour et le bonheur ne sont-ils qu'une illusion ?

Non, non, tu ne peux pas le permettre,
Ton cœur paternel l'empêchera,
Dieu tu es mon espoir.
Tu ne séparera pas deux cœurs,
Qui ne peuvent battre que réunis.
Non, Père, non, cela ne se peut pas !
Non, non, non, cela ne se peut pas !
