Als wie der Tag die Menschen hell umscheinet
Und mit dem Licht, das den Höh'n entspringet
Die dämmernden Erscheinungen vereinet,
Ist Wissen, welches tief der Geistigkeit gelinget.

Comme le jour brille clair sur les hommes
Et avec une lumière qui jaillit d'en haut
Se réunit aux apparitions obscures,
Est la connaissance, qui est profondément adaptée à l'esprit.
