An Himmelshöh'n die Sterne geh'n in...

Language: German (Deutsch)

An Himmelshöh'n die Sterne geh'n in fester, stiller Bahn;
Der Mensch, das schwache Kind der Zeit,
blickt zu der ew'gen Herrlichkeit
Mit glaubensvollem Trost hinan.

Durch Wolken bricht der Hoffnung Licht zur Erdenwelt herab;
Wer's aufnahm in sein frommes Herz,
der wandelt ohne Furcht und Schmerz
Mit Gottvertraun zum stillen Grab!
