Zweite israelitin

Second Israelite woman

O selig, wem der Herr gewähret,
O blessed he whom the Lord protects,
den Heiland, den mein Wunsch begehret,
the savior, for whom my desire yearns,
den Göttlichen zu sehn.
to see the divine one.
Mit wonnerfüllten Tränengüssen
With joyful flowing tears
tief hingebeugt zu seinen Füßen
bowed down low to his feet
ihn dankend zu erhöhn.
to praise him in thanks.
