Macht Jugend verständig, macht Tote lebendig, macht Kranke gesund, ja gesund. Mahler again used contrasting materials in this touching song about a dead soldier's ghost visiting his beloved. Mahler casts the story as a ghostly dialog between the sentry and his girl, alternating between military drums and fanfares and sustained melodic passages.
