La Péri pleurait, de ses larmes brillait
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ténor solo et quatuor vocal
 La Péri pleurait, de ses larmes brillait
 Tout autour l'air clair, le ciel riait.
 Car dans les larmes il y a avait un pouvoir magique,
 Celui qui fait pleurer un esprit pour l'humanité.
