Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 2 | “Resurrection” Movement 5: Part 3 and 4

The story you see, began long before any of us.

We’ll return back from whence we came, the wise say.

Child … you almost gave up.

What is that mighty strength you carry hidden in your heart?


“Rise again, yes, rise again…”
—Mahler, from Des Knaben Wunderhorn, of Urlicht or Primeval Light.

Come forward, through the grace of that Light, and show forth —

That, which is the reward of your faith.

The strength to do great deeds, with the heavens beside you.
