1.Ruhn in Frieden alle Seele,
die vollbracht ein banges Quälen
die vollendet süßen Traum,
lebensatt, geboren kaum,
aus der Welt hinüberschieden:
Alle Seelen ruhn in Frieden!

2. Liebevoller Mädchen Seelen,
deren Tränen nicht zu zählen,
die ein falscher Freund verließ,
und die blinde Welt verstieß:
alle, die von hinnen schieden,
Alle Seelen ruhn in Frieden!

3. Und die nieder Sonne lachten,
unterm Mond auf Dornen wachten,
Gott im reinen Himmelslicht
einst zu sehn von Angesicht:
alle, die von hinnen schieden,
Alle Seelen ruhn in Frieden!

Translation
Rest in peace, all souls,
those that have done with care and suffering,
those that have fulfilled a happy dream,
those sated with life, those scarcely born—
all who have passed from this world to the Beyond,
All souls, rest in peace!

Souls of loving-hearted maidens,
those who shed uncounted tears,
whom false lovers deserted,
and the blind world cast out—
all that have departed hence,
All souls, rest in peace!

And those that have never smiled on the sunshine,
but beneath the moon waited, on thorns,
to see God in the pure light of Heaven
face to face—
all that have departed hence,
All souls, rest in peace!
