Kleines Lied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Und werden wir uns nie besitzen,
so will ich Deinen Namen doch
ins Holz der Weltenesche schnitzen,
ein Zeugnis fernstem Volke noch.

So sollen tausend Herzen lesen,
die gern ein kleines Lied beglückt,
was Du dem Einsamen gewesen,
wie Du ihn innerlichst entzückt.

Translation(s): ENG FIN FRE
