Dorfkirche im Sommer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schläfrig singt der Küster vor,
Schläfrig singt auch die Gemeinde,
Auf der Kanzel der Pastor
Betet still für seine Feinde.

Dann die Predigt, wunderbar,
Eine Predigt ohne Gleichen.
Die Baronin weint sogar
Im Gestühl, dem wappenreichen.

Amen, Segen, Thüren weit,
Orgelton und letzter Psalter.
Durch die Sommerherrlichkeit
Schwirren Schwalben, flattern Falter.
