Bethlehem – Gepriesen Sei Der Untergang lyrics

Durch ungluckselige Weiten
Einer unbefleckten Sonnenferne
Schreitet langsam Fubes
Das letzte Sakrament, bereit,
Die Tur zu Effnen,
Welche das Vergessen
In seiner glorreichen Allwissenheit
Meiner sterblichen Leere offenbart

Es ist nicht die Asche
Welche auf mein Haupt regnet
Es ist viel mehr
Die gekreuzigte Verdammnis
Welche der Wiederkehr
Meiner filigranen Unrast entsagt

Hoch am dammrigen Firmament
Erklimmt meine Geduld
Die Versagung meiner fruhen Suhne

Denn ich bin das Geleit
Der erhabene Schenheit
Des Todes.

English translate: Praised Be The Downfall

Through wretched vastness
Of an unstained sun-distance
The last sacrament
Strides slowly, willing,
To open the door,
Which the forgetting reveals
In it's glorious omniscence
Of my mortal emptiness

It is not the ashes
That rain upon my head
It is rather
The crucified damnation
That denies the return
Of my filigrane restlessness

High against the dim firmament
My patience climbs upon
The failure of my early retribution

For I am the guard
Of the exalted beauty
Of death.
