Du bist die Sonne meines Lebens

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du bist die Sonne meines Lebens
Und lieben hast Du mich gelehrt,
Ich aber bin die Sonnenblume,
Die sich nach Dir, o Sonne, kehrt!

Mein Lebensglück, es kann ersprießen
Bei Dir, du Holde, nur allein!
Die Sonnenblume kann nur blühen
Im lichten, lichten Sonnenschein.
