Wenn leuchtend der Mond schon

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn leuchtend der Mond schon
In silberner Pracht
Am Himmelszelt strahlend
Entgegen dir lacht,
Denn harrend am Ufer
Dein Liebster schon weilt,
O denke die gl├╝ckliche
Stunde enteilt.

Mit Mantel und Zither
Ist er schon am Ort,
Sein Sang dir verk├╝ndet:
Dein Trauter ist dort;
O komm jetzt, o komm jetzt
Nicht immer wie heut,
Nicht immer wie heut
Ist das Boot schnell bereit.
