Wo dein Fuß gegangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wo dein Fuß gegangen,
Wo gehaucht dein Mund,
Wo dein Blick gehangen:
Da ist heil'ger Grund.
Geh ich jetzt alleine,
Wo du je [gewallt]1,
Seh ich immer deine
Weihende Gestalt.

Where your foot trod

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Where your foot trod,
Where your mouth breathed,
Where your gaze rested:
That is holy ground.
When I now walk alone
Wherever you [wandered],1
I always see your
Consecrating figure.
