Avec une si belle main,
Que servent tant de charmes,
Que vous tenez du dieu malin,
Bien manier les armes.
Et quand cet Enfant est chagrin 
Bien essuyer ses larmes.

Serenade
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
Mit einer derart schönen Hand,
die soviel Reize bieten kann,
die ihr vom Liebesgott gesandt,
fasst du die Waffen trefflich an.
Und wenn das Kind geworden schlapp,
dann wische ihm die Tränen ab.
