Ob feindselige Winde

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

Ob feindselige Winde
Schreckhaft tosen, o gräme dich nicht!
Denn hold werden im Lenze
Lüftlein kosen, o gräme dich nicht!

Ob erstorbne Gebüsche
Rings dein Auge [beleidigen]1,
Aus dem Tode lebendig
Blüh'n einst Rosen, o gräme dich nicht!

Ob durch stachlige Wüste
Hin zur Kaba die Reise geht,
Laß dich Dornen und Disteln
Nicht erbosen, o gräme dich nicht!

Ob glückseliger Heimath
Jussuf grausam entrissen weint,
Hoch in Glorie prangt einst,
Der verstoßen, o gräme dich nicht!

Alles kreiset und wechselt,
Auch dein Leiden, es wandelt sich;
[Nicht erliege den herben
Schicksalslosen]2, o gräme dich nicht!

H. Gál sets stanzas 1-3, 5
