Heiliger Himmel
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Sommerträume ihr, purpurne Abende ... 
Odins waltender Speer 
Teilt die Wolkenbahn, und ein letzter 
Goldblitz flammt durch Luft und Land. 

Asgards heilige Hallen krönen den Himmel 
Blühende Götter wandeln in seliger Jugend
Über die funkelnden Gefilde des Lichts.
Sommertraüme ihr: purpurne Abende.

Cieux saints
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Rêves d'été, soirées pourpres...
La lance d'Odin qui règne
Divise le chemin dans les nuages, et un dernier
Éclair doré s'enflamme à travers l'air et la terre.

Les saintes voûtes d'Ásgard couronnent les cieux
Tandis que des dieux ardents se promènent dans une jeunesse bénie
Au-dessus des champs étincelants de lumières.
Rêves d'été, soirées pourpres....
