Hagel schmettert

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hagel schmettert,
Sturmentblättert
Rauschen Eichen; 
Aus der Wolke 
Deinem Volke,
Donnergott, o gib ein Zeichen! 

Wölfe finden 
Fährt in Winden,
Furt in Wellen;
Auf, ihr Raben,
Rosse traben -- 
Wagt es wer und naht den Schwellen? 

Schwerter schallen,
Schilde prallen,
Jungfrau bringen, 
Blut in Locken,
Um den Rocken
Gold'ne Gürtel, gold'ne Schlingen.

Adler sanken,
Segel schwanken,
Todt sind Knechte;
Viel des Herben,
Viel Verderben
Wandte Gott mit starker Rechte.

Fried' im Lande,
Kett' und Bande
Geh'n zu Grunde;
Sieg'sruf tönend,
Berge krönend,
Glüht die Feiernacht im Bunde.

Wehrwolf grabe,
Leichenrabe,
Krächz' am Strom in Hela's Thale:
Und zum Tranke
Geh' das blanke 
Schwert um bei dem Siegesmahle!
