O lass mich dein gedenken

Language: German (Deutsch)

O lass mich dein gedenken
Wenn fern von dir ich bin,
Ich will's in Nacht versenken,
Dass ich dein eigen bin.
 
Ich will es Niemand sagen[,]
Ein leises duft'ges Bild[,]
Will ich's im Herzen tragen
Was meine Seele füllt.
 
Ich stehe ganz alleine
Am Fenster schmal und klein
Erhellt vom Mondenscheine
Und denke innig dein.
 
Und alles öd und stille[,]
Kein Lüftchen regt sich mehr[,]
Des Tages reiche Fülle
Ruht schlummernd rings umher.
 
Nur Mond und Sterne glänzen
In ihrer ewgen Ruh'
Und leichte Wölkchen ziehen
Und wehen ab und zu.
 
O lass mich dein gedenken[,]
Dein, wenn ich ferne bin,
Ich will's in Nacht versenken[,]
Dass ich dein eigen bin.
