Dem dunkeln Schoß der heilgen Erde

Language: German (Deutsch) after the German (Deutsch)

Dem dunkeln Schoß der heilgen Erde
[Vertrauen wir der Hände Tat]1
Vertraut der Sämann seine Saat
Und hofft, daß sie entkeimen werde
Zum Segen, nach des Himmels Rat.
Noch köstlicheren Samen bergen
Wir trauernd in der Erde Schoß,
Und hoffen, dass er aus den Särgen
Erblühen soll zu schönerm Los.
