Dem Vaterland

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dem Vaterland!
Das ist ein hohes helles Wort,
Das hallt durch uns're Herzen fort
Wie Waldesrauschen, Glockenklang,
Drommetenschmettern, Lerchensang,
Das fällt ein Blitz in unsre Brust,
Zu heil'ger Flamme wird die Lust!
Dem Vaterland!

Dem Vaterland!
Das Wort gibt Flügel dir, o Herz!
Flieg auf, flieg auf, schau niederwärts
Die Wälder, Ströme, Tal und Höh'n:
O deutsches Land, wie bist du schön!
Und überall klingt Liederschall
Und überall ein Widerhall:
Dem Vaterland!
