by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

An Gottes Thron
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT
Nachts, wann gute Geister schweifen,
Schlaf dir von der Stirne streifen,
Mondenlicht und Sternenflimmern
Dich mit ewigem All umschimmern,
Scheinst du dir entkörpert schon,
Wagest dich an Gottes Thron.
