Freunde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schmerzen und Freuden
Reift jede Stunde
Zu goldenen [Feldern]1 Ernten,
Und zwischen den Ähren lächelt auf
Aus Blumen die Schönheit.

Aber den Herzen einzusammeln,
Freunde, eint eure Kraft mit uns:
Laßt uns vom Irdischen
Bergen das Göttliche,
Daß wir das Leben
Ernten!
