Hinüber wall' ich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hinüber wall' ich,
Und jede Pein
Wird einst ein Stachel
Der Wollust seyn.
Noch wenig Zeiten,
So bin ich los,
Und liege trunken
Der Lieb' im Schooß.
Unendliches Leben
Wogt mächtig in mir;
Ich schaue von oben
Herunter nach dir.
An jenem Hügel
Verlischt dein Glanz -
Ein Schatten bringet
Den kühlenden Kranz.
O! sauge, Geliebter,
Gewaltig mich an,
Daß ich entschlummern
Und lieben kann.
Ich fühle des Todes
Verjüngende Flut,
Zu Balsam und Aether
Verwandelt mein Blut -
Ich lebe [bey]1 Tage
[Voll]2 Glauben und Muth,
Und sterbe die Nächte
In heiliger Glut.

Hymne à la nuit

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

Je suis en pèlerinage
Et toute peine
Sera un jour un aiguillon
De plaisir.
Encore un peu de temps,
Et je serai libre,
Et serai allongée, ivre
Dans le sein de l'amour.
Une vie sans fin
Bouillonnera puissamment en moi ;
Je regarderai d'en haut
En bas vers toi.
Sur cette colline
Ton éclat faiblira
Et une ombre t'apportera
Une couronne fraîche.
Ô mon bien-aimé, fais
Que je sois forte,
Que je puisse tomber dans le sommeil
Et aimer !
Je sens de la mort
Le flot qui rajeunit,
En baume et en éther
Mon sang est transformé --
Le jour je vis
Pleine de foi et de courage,
Et la nuit je meurs
Dans le feu sacré.
