Har dagen sanket al sin sorg

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Har dagen sanket al sin sorg
og graedt den ud i dug,
saa aabner natten himlens borg
med evigt tungsinds tavse sorg.
Og en for en
og to for to
gaa fjerne verdeners genier frem
af himmeldybets dunkle gem.
Og hoejt over jordens lyst og elende
med stjernekjerter hoejt i haende
skride de langsomt hen over himlen.
De fodtrin skifte
med sorg i sinde.
Underligt vifte
for rummets kolde vinde
stjernekjerternes flakkende flammer.

Und hat der Tag all seine Qual

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Danish (Dansk)

Und hat der Tag all seine Qual
Tautränend ausgeweint,
Dann öffnet Nacht den Himmelssaal
In ewigen Trübsinns stiller Qual.
Und eins und eins
Und zwei und zwei
Zieht fremder Welten Genienchor
Aus dunklem Himmelsgrund hervor,
Und über irdischen Lüsten und Schmerzen,
In Händen hoch die Sternenkerzen,
Schreiten sie langsam über den Himmel hin.
Tieftraurig gehen sie,
[Getreu]1 dem Gebot . . .
Verwunderlich wehen,
Von des Weltraums kalten Winden bedroht,
Der Sternenkerzen flackernde Flammen.
