Rise Again
Lyrics by Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock and Gustav Mahler

Rise again, yes, rise again,
Will you, my dust, after a brief rest!”
Eternal life! Eternal life
will He who called you, give you.

To bloom again are you sown.
The Lord of the harvest goes...
He goes and gathers the sheaves
of us who have died.

O believe, my heart, O believe.
Nothing of yours will be lost!
All that you’ve desired is yours.
All that you’ve loved and fought for is yours.

O believe, you were not born for nothing!
You have not lived and suffered in vain!

What has come into being must perish,
What has perished must rise again!

Cease from trembling…
Cease from trembling…
Prepare yourself!
Prepare yourself…
Prepare yourself to live!

O Pain, You piercer of all things,
From you, I’ve been wrested!
O Death, You conqueror of all things,
Now, you are conquered!

With wings that I’ve won for myself,
In love's fierce striving
I shall soar upwards
To the light which no eye has penetrated!

I shall die to live!

Rise again!
Yes, you will rise again!
My heart, in the twinkling of an eye!
What you have fought for
will lead you to God!
