Abend sinkt still auf die Flur
Müde sucht alles die Hütte,
Und es erhebt sich die Bitte
Fromm zu dem Herrn der Natur:
Du, der das Leben uns gab,
Freude und Frieden uns schenket,
Der uns're Schritte gelenket,
Tugend uns reichtest zum Stab,
Gieb nun den Müden die Ruh',
Die du der Unschuld beschieden,
Herr, und dein himmlischer Friede
Drücke die Augen uns zu.
