Steure, mutiger Segler! Es mag der Witz...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Steure, mutiger Segler! Es mag der Witz dich verhöhnen,
    Und der Schiffer am Steur senken die lässige Hand.
Immer, immer nach West! Dort muß die Küste sich zeigen,
    Liegt sie doch deutlich und liegt schimmernd vor deinem Verstand.
Traue dem leitenden Gott und folge dem schweigenden Weltmeer,
    Wär sie noch nicht, sie stieg' jetzt aus den Fluten empor.
Mit dem Genius steht die Natur in ewigem Bunde,
    Was der eine verspricht, leistet die andre gewiß.
