Namenloses Weh

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wohl dem, der noch vertrauen kann
Sein Weh an andre Herzen,
Der da noch Mut und Kraft gewann,
Zu klagen seine Schmerzen.
Es gibt ein Leid, es gibt ein Weh,
Das tief im Innern glutet.
Was auch im Lauf der Zeit gescheh,
Es schweigt und zuckt und blutet.
Es gibt ein Weh, das niemand kennt,
Was findet keinen Namen --
O wohl dem, der dies Weh nicht kennt!
Gott schütz ihn weiter.  Amen.
