Diese Richtung ist gewiß

Language: German (Deutsch)

Diese Richtung ist gewiß, 
Immer schreite, schreite! 
Finsterniß und Hinderniß 
Drängt mich nicht zur Seite. 

Endlich leuchtest meinem Pfad 
Luna! klar und golden; 
Immer fort und immer grad 
Geht mein Weg zur Holden. 

Nun der Fluß die Pfade bricht, 
Ich zum Nachen schreite, 
Leite, liebes Himmelslicht! 
Mich zur andern Seite. 

Seh' ich doch das Lämpchen schon 
Aus der Hütte schimmern, 
Laß um deinen Wagenthron 
Alle Sterne glimmern.
