Nacht fließt in Tag und Tag in Nacht

Language: German

Nacht fließt in Tag und Tag in Nacht,
Der Bach zum Strom, der Strom zum Meer -
In Tod zerrinnt des Lebens Pracht,
Und Tod zeugt Leben licht und hehr.

Und jeder Geist, der brünstig strebt,
Dringt wie ein Quell in alle Welt, --
Was du erlebst, hab' ich erlebt,
Was mich erhellt, hat dich erhellt.

All' sind wir eines Baums Getrieb,
Ob [Zweig, ob Ast]1, ob Mark, ob Blatt -
Gleich hat Natur uns Alle lieb,
Sie unser Aller Ruhestatt.

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 fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
