Gebet

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ertrage du's, laß schneiden dir den Schmerz
Scharf durchs Gehirn und wühlen hart durchs Herz -
Das ist der Pflug, nach dem der Sämann sät,
Daß aus der Erde Wunden Korn entsteht. 

Korn, das der armen Seele Hunger stillt -
Mit Korn, o Vater, segne mein Gefild:
Reiß deinem Pflug erbarmungslos den Pfad,
Doch wirf auch ein in seine Furchen Saat!


Confirmed with Ferdinand Avenarius, Stimmen und Bilder. Neuere Gedichte, Neunte, verbesserte und stark vermehrte Auflage, München: Georg D. W. Callwey, [1911], page 81
