Hier bin ich Herr! Gegrüßt das Licht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hier bin ich Herr! Gegrüßt das Licht,
das durch die stille Schwüle
der müden Brust gewaltig bricht
mit seiner strengen Kühle.

Nun bin ich frei! Ich taumle noch,
und kann mich noch nicht fassen.
O Vater, du erkennst mich doch,
und wirst nicht von mir lassen.
