Trost im Liede

Language: German (Deutsch)

Braust des Unglücks Sturm empor:
Halt' ich meine Harfe vor.
Schützen können Saiten nicht,
Die er [schnell und leicht]1 durchbricht;
Aber durch des Sanges Thor
Schlägt er milder an mein Ohr.
Sanfte Laute hör ich klingen,
Die mir [in]2 die Seele dringen,
Die mir auf des Wohllauts Schwingen
Wunderbare Tröstung bringen;
Und ob Klagen mir entschweben,
Ob ich still und schmerzlich weine,
Fühl ich mich doch so ergeben,
Daß ich fest und gläubig meine:
Es gehört zu meinem Leben,
Daß sich Schmerz und Freude eine.
