Du bist die Ruh, D. 776 (Orch. Webern) – Insula Orchestra, Laurence Equilbey & Stanislas de Barbeyrac

“Du bist die Ruh” lyrics (approximate and imprecise translation from German to English)

You are peace
The mild peace
You are longing
And what stills it

I consecrate to you
Full of pleasure and pain
As a dwelling here
My eyes and heart

Come with with me
Close the gates quietly
behind you

Drive other pain
Out of this beast
May my heart be full
With your pleasure

The tabernacle of my eyes
By your radiance alone
is illuminated
O, fill it completely
