Das ist des Abends Segen 
und seine stille Tat, 
daß Sturm und Kampf sich legen, 
wenn seine feuchten Schwingen 
hinschatten übern Pfad. 

Das hat er vor dem Tage, 
daß er des Herzens Drang, 
daß Sorgen er und Plage 
besänftig still mit mildem, 
mit süßem Schlafgesang.- 

Daß er mit dichtem Schleier 
des Landmanns Pflug umhüllt, 
mit stiller Dankesfeier 
die Hütten und die Herzen 
allüberall erfüllt.
