Weil jetzo alles stille ist

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Weil]1 jetzo alles stille ist
und alle Menschen schlafen,
mein' Seel' das ew'ge Licht begrüsst,
ruht wie ein Schiff in Hafen.

Der falsche Fleiß, die Eitelkeit, 
was keinen mag erlaben,
darin der Tag das Herz zerstreut,
liegt alles tief begraben.

Ein andrer König [wunderreich]2
mit königlichen Sinnen,
zieht herrlich ein im stillen Reich,
besteigt die ew'gen Zinnen.
