(Text:
Die Felsensaeulen fangen an tief und leise zu ertoenen:
Hebt zu der ewigen Kraft eure Herzen;
Fuehlet euch Allah nah`, schaut seine Tat!
Wechseln im Erdenlicht Freuden und Schmerzen;
Ruhig hier stehen die Pfeiler der Welt.
Tausend und Tausend und abermals tausende
Jahre so ruhig wie jetzt in der Kraft,
Blitzen gediegen mit Glanz und mit Festigkeit,
Die Unverwuestlichkeit stellen sie dar.
Herzen erglueheten, Herzen erkalteten,
Spielend umwechselten Leben und Tod.
Aber in ruhigen Harren sie dehnten sich
Herrlich, kraeftiglich, frueh so wie spaet.
Hebt zu der ewigen Kraft eure Herzen
Fuehlet euch Allah nah`, schaut seine Tat!
Vollends belebet ist jetzo die tote Welt.
Preisend die Goettlichkeit, schweigt das Gedicht!
Translation:
Deep and quiet, the pillars of rock begin to sound:`
Lift up your hearts to the power eternal,
Feel Allah`s presence, behold all his works!
Joy and pain interweave in the light of the world;
The world`s [mighty] pillars stand peacefully here.
Thousands and thousands and once again thousands
Of years serene in their power as now
Flash by purely with glory and strength,
They display the indestructible.
Hearts glowed [so brightly], hearts became colder.
Playfully interchanged life and death.
But in a peaceful awaiting they stretch out,
Gorgeous, powerfully, early and late.
Lift up your hearts to the power eternal,
Feel Allah`s presence, behold all his works!
Thus the dead world comes completely to life.
Praising divinity, the poem falls quiet!)
