Es ist gut

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bei Mondenschein im Paradeis
Fand Jehovah im Schlafe tief
Adam versunken, legte leis
Zur Seit ein Evchen, das auch entschlief.
Da lagen nun in Erdeschranken
Gottes zwei lieblichste Gedanken--
"Gut!!!" rief er sich zum Meisterlohn,
Er ging sogar nicht gern davon.

Kein Wunder, daß es uns berückt,
Wenn Auge frisch in Auge blickt,
Als hätten wir's so weit gebracht,
Bei dem zu sein, der uns gedacht.
Und ruft er uns, wohlan, es sei!
Nur, das beding ich, alle zwei!
Dich halten dieser Arme Schranken,
Liebster von allen Gottesgedanken.
