Die Abendglocken klingen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Abendglocken klingen, 
das Tagwerk ist vollbracht;
es sinkt auf heil'gen Schwingen
herab die stille Nacht,
sie spendet süßen Schlummer,
versüßt uns manchen Kummer;
ein Gott im Himmel wacht
in stiller Nacht,  in stiller Nacht.

Es leuchten Mond und Sterne 
am hohen Himmelszelt, 
aus lichterfüllter Ferne 
bestrahlen sie die Welt;
dort thront der Heil'ge, Hehre, 
ihm Lob und Preis und Ehre,
der unser Leben hält, 
dem Herrn der Welt,  dem Herrn der Welt.
