Steig auf, geliebter Schatten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Steig auf, geliebter Schatten,
Vor mir in toter Nacht,
Und lab mich Todesmatten
Mit deiner Nähe Macht!

Du hast's gekonnt im Leben,
Du kannst es auch im Tod.
Sich nicht dem Schmerz ergeben,
War immer dein Gebot.

So komm, still meine Tränen,
Gib meiner Seele Schwung,
Und Kraft den welken Sehnen,
Und mach mich wieder jung.

Lève‑toi, ombre bien‑aimée

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

Lève-toi, ombre bien-aimée,
Devant moi, dans la nuit de mort,
Et réconforte ma faiblesse mortelle
Par la force de ta présence !

Tu as pu le faire dans la vie,
Tu peux le faire dans la mort,
Ne pas s'abandonner à la douleur
A toujours été ton commandement.

Aussi viens, calme mes larmes,
Donne la vigueur à mon âme,
Et la force à mes nerfs affaiblis,
Et fais-moi jeune à nouveau.
