Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MARIE
geht vom Fenster weg, allein mit dem Kind, betrachtet es schmerzlich
Der Mann! So vergeistert! Er hat sein Kind nicht angesehn! Er schnappt noch über mit den Gedanken! Was bist so still, Bub. Fürch'st Dich? Es wird so dunkel, man meint, man wird blind; sonst scheint doch die Lantern' herein!
ausbrechend
Ach! Wir arme Leut. Ich halt's nit aus. Es schauert mich!
stürzt zur Tür

English Libretto or Translation:

MARIE
walks away from the window, alone with the child, looks at it painfully
The man! So stunned! He did not look at his child! He still grabs the thoughts! What are you so quiet, boy. Are you afraid? It gets so dark, you think you are blind; otherwise the Lantern seems to come in!
Breaking out
Oh! We poor people. I can not stand it. It shivers me!
crashes to the door
