Sunlight shines on my face;
This is my grace, to be
Restored, born again,
In flame.

 

When I was young I flew in the velvet night;
Shining by day, a firebird bathed in light!
Grey now my feathers, which once were red and gold;
My destiny to soar up to the sun

 

Sunlight shines on my face;
This is my grace, to be
Restored, born again,
In flame.

 

Do not despair that I am gone away;
I will appear again
When the sunset paints
Flames across the vast, eternal sky.
