Kniend im Staube lieg ich vor dir,

Chant d'amour
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
À genoux dans la poussière, je suis devant toi,
Tu es ma foi et mon bréviaire.
Tu es mon amour, tu es mon trésor;
Mon espoir de l'autre côté. Mon ciel là-bas.

Tu es ma vérité et tu es mon rêve.
Tu es la connaissance dans le temps et l'espace.
Tu es la bonté, l'être lui-même.
Tu es la beauté. Je t'aime.
