Faust. What deep-sounding burden, what tremelo strain Arrest the glass before I can drink? Does that solemn ringing already proclaim The glorious advent of Holy Week? Already, choirs, are you intoning What angels’ lips sang once, a comforting chant, Above the sepulcher’s darkness sounding, Certain assurance of a new covenant? chorus of women.

Lord, since you’ve stopped by here again, liking to know How all of us are doing, for which we’re grateful, And since you’ve never made me feel de trop, Well, here I am too with your other people. Excuse, I hope, my lack of eloquence, Though this whole host, I’m sure, will think I’m stupid. Coming from me, high-sounding sentiments Would only make you laugh—that is, provided Laughing is a thing Your Worship still did About suns and worlds I don’t know beans, I only see How mortals find their lives pure misery.
Turn your back bravely On the sunlight, sweet sunlight, of our earth forever, Tear wide open those dark gates boldly Which the whole world skulks past with averted heads. The time has come to disprove by deeds, Because the gods are great, man’s a derision, To cringe back no more from that black pit Whose unspeakable tortures are your own invention, To struggle toward that narrow gate Around which all Hell flames in constant eruption, To do it calmly, without regret, Even at the risk of utter extinction.
