Auf Berges Höhen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hier oben ist es still!
Es sinkt in Ruh' das weite Tal,
erloschen ist der letzte Strahl;
aushallend noch ein Klang.

Hier oben ist es still!
Am Himmel funkelt Stern an Stern,
und hinten glüht der Weltenkern
in hoher Ewigkeit.

Hier oben ist es still!
Ich opfre dir ins Knie gebeugt,
du hast dich flüsternd mir geneigt,
geheimnissvoller Geist.

Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani
