Hier ist des Friedens Welt . . .
Mensch, vergiß deine Sorgen hier.
Vielhundertjährige Bäme
Ragen hinein in die blauen Räume;
Ihre Stimmen verkündigen dir,
Daß ein ewiger Wille
Auch dich erhält.

Fühlst du des Friedens Welt?
In die unbegriffene Stille
Glüht deine Seele hinein . . .
Alle Zweifel kommen ins Wanken
Und aller Spott;
Und durch deine Gedanken
Wandert allein
Dein Gott.

Confirmed with Franz Evers, Hohe Lieder, Berlin: Schuster & Loeffler, 1896. Appears in Lieder und Gesänge, page 58.
