Hasten, ye winds! and yield her the mercy
Lying in sleep on your purified breath;
Yield her the mercy, enfolding a blessing,
Yield her the mercy whose signet is Death.

See her work dropping--
Fate, thou art merciful! Life, thou art done!
God protect all of us--
God shelter all of us
From the heart breaking, and yet living on!
