Original text and translations

German.png German text

Nach oben mußt du blicken,
gedrücktes, wundes Herz,
dann wandelt in Entzücken
sich bald dein tiefster Schmerz.

Froh darfst du Hoffnung fassen,
wie hoch die Flut auch treibt.
Wie wärst du denn verlassen,
wenn dir die Liebe bleibt?

English.png English translation

You must look up,
oppressed, wounded heart,
Then your deepest agonies
Will soon turn to delight.

"You may cling to hope gladly,
however high the flood rises.
How can you be lost
if you still have love?
