Zur Ruh', zur Ruh'

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zur Ruh', zur Ruh', 
Ihr müden Glieder!
Schließt fest euch zu, 
Ihr Augenlider!

Ich bin allein,
Fort ist die Erde;
Nacht muß es sein,
Daß Licht mir werde;

O führt mich ganz,
Ihr innern Mächte!
Hin zu dem Glanz
Der tiefsten Nächte.

Fort aus dem Raum
Der Erdenschmerzen
Durch Nacht und Traum
Zum Mutterherzen!

Se reposer, se reposer

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Se reposer, se reposer,
Membres fatigués !
Se fermer vite,
Paupières !

Je suis seul,
La terre est partie ;
Ce doit être la nuit,
Qui devient ma lumière ;

Oh, guidez-moi bien,
Puissances intérieures !
Vers la splendeur
De la nuit la plus profonde.

Loin hors du royaume
De la douleur terrestre
À travers nuit et rêve
Vers le cœur de la vie !
