Der trauernde Rabbi

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weinest schon so lange, Rabbi, 
Auf dem alten Leichenstein; 
Nimmer weckst du auf die Todten, 
Laß darum das Weinen sein!

Nicht die Todten will ich wecken,
Ach sie schlummern sanft und leicht,
Um die Brüder, die noch leben,
Ist mein Auge trüb und feucht.

Jeder Tag bringt neue Qualen
Über meines Volkes Haupt,
Weil es treulich sonder Wanken
Gott den Vater einzig glaubt.
