So laß herein nun brechen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
So laß herein nun brechen
die Brandung, wie sie will,
du darfst ein Wort nur sprechen,
so wird der Abgrund still.
Und bricht die letzte Brücke
zu dir, der treulich steht,
hebt über Not und Glücke
mich einsam das Gebet.
