Original text and translations

German.png German text

Selig sind die Toten,
die in dem Herren sterben,
von nun an.
Ja der Geist spricht:
Sie ruhen von ihrer Arbeit
und ihre Werke folgen ihnen nach.

English.png English translation

Blessed are the dead,
that die in the Lord
from now on.
Yea, the Spirit speaks:
they rest from their labors
and their works follow them.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Mostantól fogva boldogok a halottak,
akik az Úrban halnak meg.
Igen, mondja a Lélek,
kipihenik fáradalmaikat,
tetteik pedig elkísérik őket.
