Text heard on Sample:

Die Mittel, die aus diesem Dasein führen,
ich habe sie geprüft mit Aug' und Hand.
Ein jäher Schlag – und keine Kerkerwand
ist mächtig, meine Seele zu berühren.

Bevor der Posten, der die Tür bewacht,
den dicken Klotz von Eisen sich erschlösse,
ein jäher Schlag...

(The means leading out of this life,
I've tested them with eye and hand.
An abrupt blow – and no prison wall
has the might to move my soul.

Before the guard who watches the door
could open for himself the thick iron bar,
an abrupt blow...)
