Wie rauscht so sacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie rauscht so sacht
Durch alle Wipfel
Die stille Nacht,
Hat Thal u[nd] Gipfel
Zur Ruh gebracht.
Nur der Mensch in Träumen
Sinnt fort, was er bei Tag gedacht,
Weiß nichts von dem Lied in den Bäumen
Und von des Himmels Pracht,
Der in den stillen Räumen
Ueber Allen wacht.
