D'un cœur qui t'aime (1882)

D'un cœur qui t'aime

D'un cœur qui t'aime,
Mon Dieu, qui peut troubler la paix ?
Il cherche en tout ta volonté suprême,
Et ne se cherche jamais.
Sur la terre, dans le ciel même,
Est-il d'autre bonheur que la tranquille paix
D'un cœur qui t'aime ?

A heart that loves you

Who, good Lord, can disturb the peace
Of a heart that loves you?
He seeks in all things your supreme will,
And never seeks himself.
On earth, in heaven even,
Can other joys match the tranquil peace
Of a heart that loves you?
