Ich habe den MENSCHEN gesehen in seiner...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich habe den MENSCHEN gesehen in seiner tiefsten Gestalt,
ich kenne die Welt bis auf den Grundgehalt.

Ich weiß, daß Liebe, Liebe ihr tiefster Sinn,
und daß ich da, um immer mehr zu lieben, bin.

Ich breite die Arme aus, wie ER getan,
ich möchte die ganze Welt, wie ER umfahn.
