Du meine [Seele]1, du mein Herz,
Du meine [Wonn', o du]2 mein Schmerz,
Du meine Welt, in der ich lebe,
Mein Himmel du, [darin]3 ich schwebe,
O du mein Grab, in das hinab
Ich ewig meinen Kummer gab!
Du bist die Ruh, du bist der Frieden,
Du bist [der]4 Himmel, mir beschieden.
Daß du mich liebst, macht mich mir wert,
Dein Blick hat mich vor mir verklärt,
Du hebst mich liebend über mich,
Mein guter Geist, mein beßres Ich!

M’anam is ea thú, ’s tú mo chroí
Language: Irish (Gaelic)  after the German (Deutsch) 
M’anam is ea thú, ’s tú mo chroí,
Tú an ríméad, is fós an phian,
An domhan go léir, an fód glas fúm,
Na flaithis fiú is mé ar foluain,
Is tú an uaigh is inti tá
An uile ní do bhí dom chrá!
An faoiseamh thú, is tú an suaimhneas
Ó neamh anuas thú chun mé ’mhúscailt.
Do ghrása amháin a shábháil mé
Do shúil ghlé a tharrtháil mé.
Uaislíonn do ghrá mé asam féin
A anam liom, is m’úr-mhéin!
