Melodia Op. 74 no.9

Melodia

Z gór, gdzie dźwigali
Strasznych krzyżów brzemię,
Widzieli z dala obiecaną ziemię.
Widzieli światło niebieskich promieni,
Ku którym w dole ciągnęło ich plemię,
A sami do tych nie wejdą przestrzeni!
Do godów życia nigdy nie zasiędą,
I nawet, nawet może zapomnieni, będą.

Melody

Under their crosses’ cruel weight they stand
To see from the mountain top the promised land.
Their eyes shine with transcendent light
To see their people descending.
They see the regions they will never enter,
The horn of plenty they will never taste!
And here their bones will lie unremembered,
Perhaps for ever.
