Der Tag des Weltgerichts

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn der Erde Gründe beben,
und in Totengrüften Leben
und im Staube Jugendstärke wallt,
wenn des Auferweckers Stimme schallt:
Gott! erbarm dich unser!

Wenn mit Zittern und Entzücken
alle Völker nach dir blicken
und dein flammend Richterangesicht
Fluch und Lohn in ihre Seele spricht:
Gott! erbarm dich unser!

Wenn auch ich dann vor dir stehe,
und mein Aug' zu deiner Höhe
bebend nur emporzuschauen wagt,
wenn in mir die ganze Menschheit zagt:
Gott! erbarm dich unser!
