Frage und Antwort

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Du fragest, was ich fühl an deiner Brust
und zwingst mich nach den Worten heiss zu flehn.
Dann sag ich: heisser loht der Flamme Lust,
wenn aller Erde Flut und Luft vergehn!
Einheit der Zweiheit, Schiff und Ankergrund,
Der Wälder Wirrnis, der Sterne Pilgerstab!
Oh, Ewigkeit, erneut zu jeder Stund',
Du bist die Wiege und mein Grab!
