 Doch im Getümmel der Schlacht,
 Umrungen von Gräuel und Blut
 Gab mir nicht Ehre und Macht
 Zu siegen den blitzenden Muth.
 Nur deine süße Gestalt,
 Die mir im Kampfe erschien,
 Zog mich mit Himmelsgewalt
 Durch die drohenden Feinde dahin.
 Nur dein lächelnder Blick
 Gab mir die Stärke, den Sieg,
 Nur dein liebender Blick
 Gibt mir Belohnung und Glück.

Mais dans la mêlée de la bataille

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

 Mais dans la mêlée de la bataille
 Entouré d'horreur et de sang,
 Il ne m'était donné ni honneur ni pouvoir
 Pour vaincre la vaillance
 Seulement ta douce forme,
 Qui m'est apparue dans le combat,
 M'a conduit avec la force du ciel
 À travers l'ennemi menaçant.
 Seul ton regard souriant
 M'a donné la force pour la victoire.
 Seul ton regard tendre 
 Me donne la récompense et le bonheur.
