Hier in diesen erdbeklomm'nen 
Lüften, wo die Wehmut taut,
Hab' ich dir den unvollkomm'nen 
Kranz geflochten, Schwester, Braut!
Wenn uns droben Aufgenomm'nen
Gottes Sohn' entgegenschaut,
Wird die Liebe den vollkomm'nen 
Kranz uns flechten, Schwester, Braut.

In chiusura
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Qui nell'aria dalla terra oppressa,
dove malinconia come rugiada goccia,
ho intrecciato una ghirlanda incompiuta
per te, sorella, sposa!
Quando noi saremo accolti là in alto,
dove il Figlio di Dio su noi lo sguardo posa,
l'Amore finirà di intrecciare quel serto,
per noi, sorella, sposa!
