Alle Lieder mir,

Que tous mes chants
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Que tous mes chants
Soient des ponts d'or
Sur lesquels passe l'amour,
Pour aller vers toi, douce enfant !

Et sur l'aile du rêve ;
Dans le plaisir et la peine,
Qu'ils me portent chaque nuit
Vers ton cœur fidèle.
