Herzog Leopold von Braunschweig

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dich ergriff mit Gewalt der alte Herrscher des Flusses,
Hält dich und teilet mit dir ewig sein strömendes Reich.
Ruhig schlummerst du nun beim stilleren Rauschen der Urne,
Bis dich stürmende Flut wieder zu Taten erweckt.
Hilfreich werde dem Volke! So wie du ein Sterblicher wolltest,
Und vollend' als ein Gott, was dir als Menschen misslang.
