Der nahe Retter

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn immer trüber deine Morgen tagen,
Wenn immer schwerer deine Pulse schlagen:
Dann naht dein Freund, von allein seinen Ketten
Den Geist zu retten!
Sein Flügel Weht an deine wunder Glieder,
Schmerzlose Ruh senkt sich ambrosisch nieder,
Dem müden Aug' entlockt sein mildes Fächeln
Ein himmlisch Lächeln.
Der holde Jüngling naht mit leisem Schritte,
Dein leisres Ohr vernimmt des Helfers Tritte,
Er senkt die Fackel, und in heiliger Stille,
Ruht Psyches Hülle!
