Was irdisch ist, gehört der Erde;

Language: German (Deutsch)

Was irdisch ist, gehört der Erde;
Das Heilige gehört dem Himmel an. -
Sein werd' ich, weil ich bin. Triumphgesang, erschalle!
Erschalle [tief]1 in die Unendlichkeit hinein,
Daß [aus der Tiefe laut dein]2 Jubel wiederhalle!
[Triumph]3! ich bin; und darum werd' ich sein!
