Rein mit angebornem Glanze

Language: German (Deutsch)

Rein mit angebornem Glanze
    Wallt dahin des Lebens Quelle,
    Klarer Spiegel jede Welle
    In dem wunderbaren Tanze.
Doch bedürftige Gestalten
    Bücken sich vom Ufer nieder,
    Und der Erdensorge Walten
    Scheint im heil'gen Bache wieder,
    Daß ihm Licht und Wärm' erkalten.
Ewig ist des Stromes Milde,
    Ewig ist sein leichtes Schweben,
    Aber kurz das Erbenleben,
    Nah die störenden Gebilde! --
