An die Heimat

Language: German (Deutsch)

Heimat!
Wunderbar tönendes Wort!
Wie auf befiederten Schwingen
Ziehst du mein Herz zu dir fort,
Jubelnd, als müßt' ich den Gruß
Jeglicher Seele dir bringen,
Trag' ich zu dir meinen Fuß,
Freundliche Heimat!

Heimat!
Bei dem sanftklingenden Ton
Wecken mich alte Gesänge,
Die in der Ferne mich flohn;
Rufen mir freudenvoll zu
Heimatlich lockende Klänge:
Du nur allein bist die Ruh',
Schützende Heimat!

Heimat!
Gib mir den Frieden zurück,
Den ich im Weiten verloren,
Gib mir dein blühendes Glück!
Unter den Bäumen am Bach,
Wo ich vor Zeiten geboren,
Gib mir ein schützendes Dach,
Liebende Heimat!
