Becoming nothing is becoming God
Nichts wird, was zuvor ist;
  Nothing comes to be which before    is (already);
     wirst du nicht vor zu nicht,
         will  you  not   become, before,  nothing
So wirst du nimmermehr
  So    will you be  never
     geborn vom ewgen Licht.
           born         from     eternal       light. [If you don’t first become nothing, you will never be…]
