Text heard on Sample:
Helena: Knabenlicke aus Heldenaugen
zauberten mich zum Mädchen um,
zum Wunder ward ich mir selbst,
zum Wunder, der mich umschlang.
Aber im Nahkampf der liebenden Schwäne
des göttlichen Schwanen Kind
siegte über den sterblichen Mann!

-----------------------------------

Helena: Youth's ardour glanced from the hero's eyes
and transformed me into a girl,
miraculously I was changed,
as was he who embraced me.
But in the loving swans' encounter
the child of the swan divine
vanquished the mortal man!
