Weit tiefe, bleiche, stille Felder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weit tiefe, bleiche, stille Felder --
O wie mich das freut,
Über alle, alle Täler, Wälder
Die prächtige Einsamkeit!

Aus der Stadt nur schlagen die Glocken
Über die Wipfel herein,
Ein Reh hebt den Kopf erschrocken
Und schlummert gleich wieder ein.

Der Wald aber rühret die Wipfel
Im Schlaf von der Felsenwand,
Denn der Herr geht über die Gipfel
Und segnet das stille Land.
