Geht nun hin und grabt mein Grab

Language: German (Deutsch)

Geht nun hin und grabt mein Grab,
denn ich bin des Wanderns müde!
Von der Erde scheid ich ab,
denn mir ruft des Himmels Friede,
denn mir ruft die süße Ruh
von den Engeln droben zu.

Darum letzte gute Nacht!
Sonn und Mond und liebe Sterne,
fahret wohl mit eurer Pracht!
Denn ich reis in weite Ferne,
reise hin zum jenem Glanz,
worin ihr verschwindet ganz.
