1. Schneesturm [sung text checked 1 time]
Seele, wie bist du schöner, tiefer, nach Schneestürmen.
Auch du hast sie, gleich der Natur.
Und über beiden liegt noch ein trüber Hauch,
eh' das Gewölk sich verzog!

1.
Âme, tu es plus belle, plus profonde, après les tempêtes de neige.
Et tu en as, semblable à la nature
et sur toutes deux, repose encore un souffle trouble
tant que les nuages ne se sont pas dissipés !

Sahst du nach dem Gewitterregen den Wald?
Alles rastet, blinkt und ist schöner als zuvor.

2.
As-tu vu la forêt après la pluie d'orage ?!?!
Tout se repose, brille et est plus beau qu'avant.
Regarde, femme, toi aussi tu as besoin de la pluie d'orage !

3. Über die Grenzen des All [sung text checked 1 time]
Über die Grenzen des All blicktest du sinnend hinaus;
Hattest nie Sorge um Hof und Haus!
Leben und Traum vom Leben, plötzlich ist alles aus - - -.
Über die Grenzen des All blickst du noch sinnend hinaus!

3.
Sur la limite de l'univers tu jetais un regard méditatif ;
Tu n'avais pas de souci pour la cour et la maison !
La vie et le rêve de la vie, tout est soudain fini -- -- --
Sur la limite de l'univers tu jettes encore un regard méditatif!

4. Nichts is gekommen [sung text checked 1 time]
Nichts ist gekommen, nichts wird kommen für meine Seele.
Ich habe gewartet, gewartet, oh - gewartet!
Die Tage werden dahinschleichen, und umsonst wehen
meine aschblonden seidenen Haare um mein bleiches Antlitz!

4.
Rien n'est venu, rien ne viendra pour mon âme --
J'ai attendu, attendu, oh -- attendu !
Les jours s'écouleront lentement,
Et en vain ma chevelure blonde, soyeuse, flotte autour de mon visage pâle !

5. Hier ist Friede [sung text checked 1 time]
Hier ist Friede. Hier weine ich mich aus über alles!
Hier löst sich mein unfaßbares, unermeßliches Leid,
das mir die Seele verbrennt ...
Siehe, hier sind keine Menschen, keine Ansiedlungen.
Hier ist Friede! Hier tropft Schnee leise in Wasserlachen ...

5.
Ici est la paix.
Ici je pleure sur toutes choses !
Ici se dissout la souffrance inconcevable, immense qui brûle mon âme...
Vois, ici il n'y a pas d'hommes, pas de villages...
Ici est la paix ! Ici la neige s'égoutte dans les flaques d'eau...
