I believe in the heavenly magic
And so I call on you
Come over here
Oh, Worlds of heaven
Open up to the earthly human
Reveal your deepness, appear to him
May your magic bring light
To the seeming hopelessness of our lives
May the Earth be free
From despair and darkness
Let it shine
The soul of the World
is inside us!
Where can the light of the heart be found?
We always question and search, and desire…
Let us ourselves be the light of life
before the darkness makes us blind!
May we suffer!
With the patience of an ant,
with the dignity of a flower,
with the fervour in our wings!
Shall we suffer?
Yes, But only if the wailings
leave diamond traces
in our souls!
A bloody drop is falling into my earthly eye
A pearl is shining inside the heavenly light eye
A blow! Then pain, and flesh, and darkness in the heart!
The aspiration flows into the soul
and once more
