Unterm Sternenzelt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn stumm des Tages laut 
Getümmel und heil'ge Stille rings umher,
dann schau ich auf 
zum ewig goldenen Sternenmeer.

So weit mein müdes Auge blicket, 
es flammt und flimmert allerwärts,
und heimlicher Gesang entzücket 
mein unheilvolles Menschenherz.

Die Sternenheimat hoch da droben 
mit ihrem Glanze mich umweht.
Und meiner Brust zu Gott erhoben 
entströmt ein stilles Nachtgebet.
