Ĉarma la tero

Representative Text

1. Ĉarma la tero, dolĉa la ĉielo,
bela migro de la anim'.
Tra la belegaj regnoj ni iras,
ĝis sin malfermos sankta lim'.

2. Tempoj sinsekvas, homo-vivoj pasas,
post mortint' venas la vivant'.
Ĉesas neniam sono ĉiela
en pilgrimanta ĝoja kant'.

3. Kantis anĝeloj iam por paŝtistoj,
sonis ĉiele al tiuj ĉi:
'Pacon al tero, Homo, vi ĝoju'.
Savanto venis nun al ni.
