Perle, Träne und Tautropfen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Perle heiß ich,
Aus Meeres Grunde steig ich,
Bei Tag und bei Nacht
Erhöh' ich der Feste Pracht.

Träne heiß ich,
Die Erde gebar mich,
Selten begleit ich die Freude,
Wohne gar häufig beim Leide.

Tautropfen nenn' ich mich,
Der Himmel sendet mich,
Labend auf Blumen-Flur,
Trost der leidenden Natur.
