I was struck by the profundity of this text by Chr. Morgenstern. Various musical techniques were used. The piece was finished exactly on Pentecost 2019. Here is the original text: "Ich habe den Menschen gesehen in seiner tiefsten Gestalt, / ich kenne die Welt bis auf den Grundgehalt. / Ich weiss, dass Liebe, Liebe ihr tiefster Sinn / und dass ich da um immer mehr zu lieben, bin. / Ich breite die Arme aus, wie Er getan, / ich möchte die ganze Welt, wie Er, umfahn." In English: 'I know the human being in its deepest form / I know the world down to the basics / I know that love, love is their deepest meaning / and that I am there to love more and more / I extend my arms as He did, / I would like to embrace the whole world like He did.'
