Wie im Auge mit fliegenden Mücken,
So ist's mit Sorgen ganz genau;
Wenn wir in die schöne Welt hinein blicken,
Da schwebt ein Spinneweben-Grau;
Es überzieht nicht, es zieht nur vorüber,
Das Bild ist gestört, wenn nur nicht trüber;
Die klare Welt bleibt klare Welt:
Im Auge nur ist's schlecht bestellt.

Nichts wird rechts und links mich kränken,
Folg ich kühn dem raschen Flug;
Wollte jemand anders denken,
Ist der Weg ja breit genug.

Einheit ewigen Lichts zu spalten,
Müssen wir für törig halten,
Wenn euch Irrtum schon genügt.
Hell und Dunkel, Licht und Schatten,
Weiß man klüglich sie zu gatten,
Ist das Farbenreich besiegt.

Nachts, wann gute Geister schweifen,
Schlaf dir von der Stirne streifen,
Mondenlicht und Sternenflimmern
Dich mit ewigem All umschimmern,
Scheinst du dir entkörpert schon,
Wagest dich an Gottes Thron.
