Lass die letzte Berührung deiner Hände sanft sein wie die Blume der Nacht. Steh still, steh still, o wundervolles Ende, für einen Augenblick und sage deine letzten Worte in Schweigen. Ich neige mich vor dir, ich halte meine Lampe in die Höhe, um dir auf deinen Weg zu leuchten.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night. Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence. I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.
