Ah! mon fils, sois béni! (Act II)
French source: Eugène Scribe

Ah ! Mon fils, sois béni !
Ta pauvre mère
Te fut plus chère
Que ta Berthe... que ton amour!
Ah ! Mon fils ! Ah ! mon fils !
Tu viens, hélas ! de donner pour ta mère
Plus que la vie, en donnant ton bonheur !...
Ah ! Mon fils ! Ah ! mon fils !
Que vers le ciel s'élève ma prière,
Et sois béni dans le Seigneur,
Mon fils, sois béni dans le Seigneur !...
Jean ! Ah ! sois béni !
