So lange wir im Licht sind

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

So lange wir im Licht sind
wir werfen Schatten weit.
Erst wenn wir einmal nicht sind,
sind wir vom Leib befreit.

So lang wir auf der Welt sind,
es wechseln Nacht und Schein.
Erst wenn wir ganz erhellt sind,
wird ewig Sonne sein.
