Wenn ins Land die Wetter hängen
Und der Mensch erschrocken steht,
Wendet, wie mit Glockenklängen,
Die Gewitter Dein Gebet,
Und wo aus den grauen Wogen
Weinend auftaucht das Gefild,
Segnest Du's vom Regenbogen -
Mutter, ach, wie bist Du mild!

Wenn's einst dunkelt auf den Gipfeln
Und der kühle Abend sacht
Niederrauschet in den Wipfeln:
O Maria, heil'ge Nacht!
Laß mich nimmer wie die andern,
Decke zu der letzten Ruh'
Mütterlich den müden Wandrer
Mit dem Sternenmantel zu.
