Brünnhilde, heilige Braut!, Siegfried's aria from Die Götterdämmerung

Heilige Braut!
Wach' auf! öffne dein Auge!
Wer verschloß dich
wieder in Schlaf?
Wer band dich in Schlummer so bang?
Der Wecker kam;
er küßt dich wach,
und aber - der Braut
bricht er die Bande:
da lacht ihm Brünnhildes Lust! -
Ach! Dieses Auge,
ewig nun offen!
Ach, dieses Atems
wonniges Wehen!
Süßes Vergehen -
seliges Grauen:
Brünnhild' bietet mir - Gruß!
