F.    6. Woche    (12. - 18. Mai)
Es ist erstanden aus der Eigenheit
Mein Selbst und findet sich
Als Weltenoffenbarung
In Zeit- und Raumeskraeften;

Die Welt, sie zeigt mir ueberall
Als goettlich Urbild
Des eignen Abbilds Wahrheit.

F.    6th week:    (May 12 - 18)
My self is resurrected
from its subjectivity,
and discovers itself
as a cosmic revelation
within the forces
of Space and Time.

Everywhere the world
shows me the truth
of my own image
as the image of God.

U'.    47. Woche    (23. Februar - 1. Maerz)
Es will erstehen aus dem Weltenschosse,
Den Sinnenschein erquickend, Werdelust.

Sie finde meines Denkens Kraft
Geruestet durch die Gotterkraefte,
Die kraeftig mir im Innern leben.

U'.    47th week:    (February 23 - March 1)
Joy of genesis!

How it yearns to rise
out of its cosmic womb
to animate sense appearance!

May it find the force
of my thinking
prepared by God's forces,
that live robust
within my inner being.
