Lyrics & English Translation

My Tamino! O what joy!

My Pamina! O what joy!
Here are the gates of terror
which threaten danger and death for me.

Everywhere I shall
be at your side.
I myself shall lead you;
love guides me.
[taking him by the hand]
Let it strew the path with roses,
for roses always go with thorns.
You play the magic flute;
may it protect us on our way.
One enchanted hour it was carved
by my father out of the deepest heart
of the thousand-year-old oak,
amidst thunder and lightning, storm and tempest.
Now come and play the flute;
let it guide us on our grim path.

By the power of music we walk
cheerfully through the dark night of death!

By the power of music you walk
cheerfully through the dark night of death!

[Tamino and Pamina turn towards the mountain which is pouring out fire. They walk through crackling fire and bowling wind. Tamino plays his flute. As soon as they come out of the fire, they embrace.]

We have walked through flames,
fought the danger bravely.
May your sound protect us in the floods
as it has in the fire.

Please enjoy!

I send my kind and warm regards,
