O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,	 
Trembling at that where I had stood before;	 
When will return the glory of your prime?	 
No more - oh, never more!

Out of the day and night	 
A joy has taken flight:	 
Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar	 
Move my faint heart with grief, but with delight	 
No more - oh, never more!
