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.

Ten slotte
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Hier in deze zwaar benauwde luchten,
Vol weemoedigheid,
Heb ik jou een onvolmaakte krans gevlochten,
Zuster, bruid!
Als ons, boven opgenomen,
Straks Gods Zoon in d' ogen kijkt,
Zal de liefde een volmaakte krans ons vlechten,
Zuster, bruid!
