Nimm, o nimm die teure Hülle

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nimm, o nimm die teure Hülle,
Erde, willig in die Gruft,
sammelnd edler Kräfte Fülle,
bis der Lebenshauch sie ruft,
bis der Lebenshauch sie ruft.

Laßt den Sarg mit Kränzen zieren,
Blumen streut’ ihm auf das Haupt;
denn zum Leben muß es führen,
was der finstre Tog geraubt,
was der finstre Tog geraubt.
