Sieghafte Lust

Language: German (Deutsch)

In deinem Arm, an deinem Herzen -
O sag', was hat die Erde noch?
Und brächte sie mir tausend Schmerzen
Nach diesem Tag, ich jauchzte doch!

Und gilt es, durch die Dunkelheiten
Der letzten, großen Nacht zu gehn:
Der Schimmer dieser Seligkeiten
Wird leuchtend überm Wege stehn!

Volupté victorieuse

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

Dans tes bras, contre ton cœur.
Ô dis, qu'a donc la terre de plus ?
Et si elle m'apportait mille maux
Après ce jour, je me réjouirais encore !

Et s'il fallait, dans l'obscurité,
Traverser la dernière, la grande nuit,
Le reflet de cette béatitude
Sera rayonnant au-dessus du chemin !
