Ecclesiastical Calculation

Thirty-second Week

  I feel my own force, bearing fruit
  And gaining strength to give me to the world.
  My inmost being I feel charged with power
  To turn with clearer insight
  Toward the weaving of life's destiny.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Ich fühle fruchtend eigne Kraft
  Sich stärkend mich der Welt verleihn;
  Mein Eigenwesen fühl ich kraftend
  Zur Klarheit sich zu wenden
  Im Lebensschicksalsweben.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Ripely I feel a power now my own
  grow strong contributing me to the world;
  I feel my being gather strength to be
  clear-sighted in its web of destiny.
