Am Ufer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Welt verstummt, dein Blut erklingt;
    in seinen hellen Abgrund sinkt
            der ferne Tag,

er schaudert nicht; die Glut umschlingt
    das höchste Land, im Meere ringt
            die ferne Nacht,

sie zaudert nicht; der Flut entspringt
    ein Sternchen, deine Seele trinkt
            das ewige Licht.

At the shore

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The world falls silent, your blood begins to resound;
    into its bright abyss sinks
            the distant day,

it does not cringe; the glow embraces
    the highest land, in the sea wrestles
            the distant night,

the night does not falter; from the floodwaters springs forth
    a little star, your soul drinks
            the eternal light.
