German Text

Wir waren schon zu tief gesunken,
Der Abgrund schluckt uns völlig ein.

Die Tiefe drohte schon den Tod,
Und dennoch konnt in solcher Not
Uns keine Hand behilflich sein.

English Translation

We were already too deeply sunk,
the abyss sucked us fully in.
The depths already threatened death,

and yet, in such distress
no hand could be of help to us.

Notes

The original music is for Violino (solo) but both of the Violino have the content of the part.
