Gebrochen ist der Sturm

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gebrochen ist der Sturm,
Und mit dem Sturm [mein]1 Herz:
Ich stand so stark in dir
Im ungeheuren Schmerz.

Der Sturm der Zeitlichkeit
Währt eine kurze Weil,
Und führt das Glaubensschiff
Zum Ziel in [größter]2 Eil.

Das Meer [ist]3 hinter mir, --
Ich steig ans Rettungsland;
Du aber grüßest mich
Und nimmst mich bei der Hand.
