So mußt Du allen Dingen
Bruder und Schwester sein,
Daß sie dich ganz durchdringen,
Daß du nicht scheidest Mein und Dein.

Kein Stern, kein Laub soll fallen --
Du mußt mit ihm vergehn!
So wirst du auch mit allen
Allstündlich auferstehn.

Flügelt ein kleiner blauer
Falter vom Wind geweht,
Ein perlmutterner Schauer,
Glitzert, flimmert, vergeht.
So mit Augenblicksblinken,
So im Vorüberwehn
Sah ich das Glück mir winken,
Glitzern, flimmern, [vergehn]1.

[Sei]1 nicht traurig, bald ist es Nacht,
Da sehn wir über dem bleichen Land
Den kühlen Mond, wie er heimlich lacht
Und ruhen Hand in Hand.
 
Sei nicht traurig, bald kommt die Zeit,
Da haben wir Ruh. [Unsre]2 Kreuzlein stehen
Am hellen Straßenrande zu zweit,
Und es regnet und schneit,
Und die Winde kommen und gehen.
