Osterlied

Language: German

Die Glocken läuten das Ostern ein
In allen Enden und Landen,
Und fromme Herzen jubeln darein:
Der Lenz ist wieder erstanden!
 
Es atmet der Wald, die Erde treibt
Und kleidet sich lachend in Moose,
Und aus den schönen Augen reibt
Den Schlaf sich erwachend die Rose.
 
Das schaffende Licht, es flammt und kreist
Und sprengt die fesselnde Hülle;
Und über den Wassern schwebt der Geist
Unendlicher Liebesfülle.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995.
