Versöhnung

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es wird ein großer Stern in meinen Schoß fallen ...
Wir wollen wachen die Nacht,

In den Sprachen beten,
Die wie Harfen eingeschnitten sind.

Wir wollen uns versöhnen die Nacht -
So viel Gott strömt über.

Kinder sind unsere Herzen,
Die möchten ruhen müdesüß.

Und unsere Lippen wollen sich küssen,
Was zagst du?

Grenzt nicht mein Herz an deins -
Immer färbt dein Blut meine Wangen rot.

Wir wollen uns versöhnen die Nacht,
Wenn wir uns herzen, sterben wir nicht.

Es wird ein großer Stern in meinen Schoß fallen.

Reconciliation

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

A great star shall fall in my bosom...
We will awaken the night, 

In speech pray,
like the severed harp strings.

We will reconcile ourselves in the night --
So greatly has God shined upon us.

Our hearts are children,
that must rest sweetly weary.

And our lips must kiss,
Why do you hesitate?

Do not separate my heart from yours --
Your blood always reddens my cheeks.

We will reconcile ourselves in the night --
when we embrace, we shall not die.

A great star shall fall in my bosom...
