Entrückung III

. . . 

I am only a sparkle of the holy fire,

I am only a roaring of the holy voice.

**This translation is by Carl Engel and was Schoenberg’s preferred version.

The third and final section of Entrückung consists of only two lines. They outline the final result of this release from physical bounds: a fiery union with the divine. This print reflects the overwhelming fire and wind, and should allow one to reflect on the comfortable anonymity that comes with existing only as a single spark in the roaring fire.
