Am Tag, wo freudiges Entzücken

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am Tag, wo freudiges Entzücken
Durchströmt die wonnetrunkne Brust,
Zeig' ich mit sonnenfrohen Blicken
Durch Töne meine Himmelslust!

Wie in die nebelgraue Ferne
Vom Orient Apollo lacht,
So lächeln ihrer [word missing] Sterne
Auch in der Zukunft Schauernacht.

Und wie des Bächleins frohe Welle
Durch junger Wiesen Wechselgrün,
So fliesse in kristallner Zelle
Auch ihre Lebenswelle hin!

Bis froh auf der Vollendung Flügel
Von hehrem Schauer sanft durchbebt
Zu der Verklärung Sonnenhügel
Ihr unbewölkter Geist entschwebt!
