Vom Tode
On Death

Sechs Lieder von Gellert Six Gellert Songs


My life is ending and with each hour I move more swiftly to the grave.
What is there left for me to do in life?
Think, my man, on the nature of your death.
Do not delay, there is one more thing to be done.

Overcome Death through your faith.
Say: I know whom I believe in
And I know that I shall see Him
Manifest in this my body.
He who cried: It has been done!
Ensure’s Death’s powers now are none.
