Die Peri tritt mit schüchterner Gebärde

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Die Peri tritt mit schüchterner Gebärde
 Vor Edens Tor,
 Im Herzen Himmelshoffnungsglück:
 Ob sich die Pforte öffnen werde,
 Sie fragt's mit stummem Liebesblick.

Der Engel
 Gern grüßen wir, die so gegangen
 Den Heldentod fürs Vaterland.
 Doch sieh, noch weicht der eh'rne Riegel nicht
 Viel heil'ger muß die Gabe sein,
 Die dich zum Tor des Lichts läßt ein!

 Viel heil'ger muß die Gabe sein,
 Die dich zum Tor des Lichts läßt ein!
