Schaust du am stillen Abend auf

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schaust du am stillen Abend auf
Zum blauen blinkenden Palast  -- 
Und siehst der Sterne hellen Lauf, 
Denk' an das Liebste, was du hast. 

Und wenn am Himmel dann von fern'
Aus seiner Höh' herniederschießt
Und still versenkt ein heller Stern:
Dann hat das Liebste dich gegrüßt.
