Nach dem Sturme

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Sonne letzte Strahlen säumen 
Mit dust'gem Roth der Wolken Rand;
Dürft' ich mein Leben still verträumen, 
Den feuchten Blick Dir zugewandt!

Des Abends heil'ge Feierstille
Hat Frieden meiner Brust bescheert;
Gesegnet sei Dein starker Wille,
Der mich ein schweigend Glück gelehrt,

An dem mein stürmisches Verlangen 
Sich, wie am Fels die Woge, brach ; 
Nun folgt ein ruhesel'ges Bangen 
Dem wilden Kampf des Herzens nach.

Die Thräne, die im Auge zittert,
Enthülle keinen Schmerz Dir mehr:
Wenn es im Walde stark gewittert,
Ist lang' das Blatt noch tropsenschwer.


Musical settings (art songs, Lieder, mélodies, (etc.), choral pieces, and other vocal works set to this text), listed by composer (not necessarily exhaustive)

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
