Beteiligt Euch, – es geht um Eure Erde!
Und Ihr allein, Ihr habt die ganze Macht!
Seht zu, dass es ein wenig wärmer werde
In unserer schlimmen, kalten Winternacht!
Die ist erfüllt von lauter kaltem Grauen, –
Solange wir ihm nicht zuleibe gehn;
Wehrt Euch und kämpft, – und dann lasst und doch schauen,
Ob die Gespenster diesen Kampf bestehen!
Bestehn? Ich glaub' es nicht!
Die Sonne steigt zum Schluss!
Warum? Weil solches Licht
Am Ende siegen muss!
