Die Peri tritt mit schüchterner Gebärde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tenor-Solo
 Die Peri tritt mit schüchterner Gebärde
 Vor Edens Tor,
 Im Herzen Himmelshoffnungsglück:
 Ob sich die Pforte öffnen werde,
 Sie fragt's mit stummem Liebesblick.

Der Engel
 Gern grüßen wir, die so gegangen
 Den Heldentod fürs Vaterland.
 Doch sieh, noch weicht der eh'rne Riegel nicht
 Viel heil'ger muß die Gabe sein,
 Die dich zum Tor des Lichts läßt ein!

Engel-Chor
 Viel heil'ger muß die Gabe sein,
 Die dich zum Tor des Lichts läßt ein!

La Péri marche avec une allure timide

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

Ténor solo
 La Péri marche avec une allure timide
 Vers les portes de l'Éden,
 Le cœur plein d'espoir de bonheur céleste :
 Est-ce que les portes vont s'ouvrir,
 Demanda-t-elle avec un regard d'amour silencieux.

L'ange
 Nous accueillons volontiers celui qui est parti
 De la mort des héros pour la patrie.
 Mais vois, la barre d'airain ne  cède pas,
 Beaucoup plus sacré doit être le don
 Qui te laissera passer par la porte de la lumière !

Chœur des anges
 Beaucoup plus sacré doit être le don
 Qui te laissera passer par la porte de la lumière !
