Vom Himmel sank in wilder Meere Schauer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Vom Himmel sank in wilder Meere Schauer
Ein Tropfe bangend, gräßlich schlug die Flut,
Doch lohnte Gott bescheidnen Glaubensmut
Und gab dem Tropfen Kraft und Dauer.
Ihn schloß die stille Muschel ein.
Und nun, zu ew'gem Ruhm und Lohne,
Die Perle glänzt an unsers Kaisers Krone
Mit holdem Blick und mildem Schein.
