Allerseelen ~ To the uncounted lost…

To the uncounted lost

Auch die keinen Frieden kannten,
Aber Mut und Stärke sandten
Über leichenvolles Feld
In die halbentschlaf’ne Welt:
Alle die von hinnen schieden,
Alle Seelen ruhn in Frieden!

                                                                                                                                   ~ Johann George Jacobi

Those too who knew no peace,
But still offered courage and strength
On the corpse-strew fields
In a world half-asleep:
May all who have parted hence,
May all souls rest in peace!
