Da unten ist Frieden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Da unten ist Frieden 
im dunkeln Haus,
da schlummert der Müde,
da ruht er aus.
Und schlief er im Schimmer 
des Abends ein,
es wecket ihn nimmer
der Frühe Schein.

Den hier einst gemieden
ersehnte Ruh',
hier schließt er zum Frieden
sein Auge zu.
Der schmerzliche Stunden 
in Not durchwacht,
still schläft er da unten
in tiefer Nacht.

Da borgt nicht die Hülle
des Traums der Schmerz,
auf ewig nun stille
steht hier das Herz.
Mag's toben da oben
und stürmen sehr,
was kümmert das Toben
den Schläfer mehr?
