The text, which is also used in Mahler’s “Das Knaben Wunderhorn” talks about the desire of returning to God for an “eternal, blissful life.”
“I am from God and will return to God! God will give me a candle to light me to the bliss of eternal life.” Mahler described the text as an expression of “the questioning and agonized searching of the soul for God and its own eternal existence.”
