Und morgen wird die Sonne wieder scheinen,
und auf dem Wege, den ich gehen werde,
wird uns, die [Seligen]1, sie wieder einen
inmitten dieser sonnenatmenden Erde . . .

Und zu dem Strand, dem weiten, wogenblauen,
werden wir still und langsam niedersteigen,
stumm werden wir uns in die Augen schauen,
und auf uns sinkt des Glückes [grosses]2 Schweigen. . .

Demain
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Et demain le soleil brillera encore,
Et sur le chemin que je prendrai,
Il nous réunira, nous les bienheureux, à nouveau
Sur cette terre qui respire le soleil.

Et sur la rive, vaste, aux vagues bleues,
Nous descendrons tranquillement et lentement,
Silencieusement nous nous regarderons dans les yeux
Et le silence du bonheur descendra sur nous.
