Chor der Derwische

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Ein Gott, ein wahrer Gott ist nur,
 Und Mahomet ist sein Prophet;
 Sein Hauch beseelet die Natur,
 Zu ihm steigt unser Dank hinan!
 Den treffe Fluch, der's wagt, 
 Mit Trug dem Allbeherrscher sich zu nah'n.
 Der Frevler kann ihm nicht entfliehn;
 Des Rächers Blitz ereilet ihn,
 Stürzt ihn in Quaal und Schmerz:
 Denn Gott, Gott sieht das Herz!
