Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

FAUST
Dieu.
Il se laisse retomber dans son fauteuil.

FAUST
Mais ce Dieu, que peut-il pour moi?
Me rendra-t-il l'amour, la jeunesse et la foi?
Avec rage.
Maudites soyez vous, ô voluptés humaines!
Maudites soient les chaînes
Oui me font ramper ici-bas!
Maudit soit tout ce qui nous leurre,
Vain espoir qui passe avec l'heure,
Rêves d'amour ou de combats!
Maudit soit le bonheur, maudites la science,
La prière et la foit!
Maudite sois-tu, patience!
A moi, Satan! à moi!

English Libretto or Translation:

FAUST
putting down his beaker
God! God! God!
He drops back in his armchair
But what can this God of their s do for me?
Will he give me back love, youth and faith?
A curse on you, O human pleasures!
A curse on the fetters
Which have me grovelling on this earth!
A curse on all that deceives us,
Idle hope which speeds away with the hours,
Dream of love or of battle!
A curse on happiness, a curse on science,
Prayer and faith!
A curse on you, patience!
Satan, come to me!
