Liebliche Blume

Language: German (Deutsch)

I
 Liebliche Blume, 
 bist du so früh schon 
 wiedergekommen?
 Sei mir gegrüsset, 
 [Primula veris!]1

 Leiser denn alle 
 Blumen der Wiese 
 hast du geschlummert,
 liebliche [Blume]2,
 [Primula veris!]1

 Dir nur vernehmbar 
 lockte das erste 
 Sanfte Geflüster
 weckenden Frühlings,
 Primula veris!

 Mir auch im Herzen 
 blühte vor Zeiten,
 schöner denn alle 
 Blumen der Liebe,
 Primula veris!

II
 Liebliche Blume,
 Primula veris!
 Holde, dich nenn ich
 Blume des Glaubens. 

 Gläubig dem ersten
 Winke des Himmels
 Eilst du entgegen,
 Öffnest die Brust ihm.

 Frühling ist kommen.
 Mögen ihn Fröste,
 Trübende Nebel
 Wieder verhüllen;

 Blume, du glaubst es,
 Daß der ersehnte
 Göttliche Frühling
 Endlich gekommen,

 Öffnest die Brust ihm;
 Aber es dringen
 Lauernde Fröste
 Tödlich ins Herz dir.

 Mag es verwelken!
 Ging doch der Blume
 Gläubige Seele
 Nimmer verloren.
