Du hast mich lieb, ich weiß es

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du hast mich lieb, ich weiß es,
Dein Aug' es mir gestand,
Als einst zu bangem Abschied
Sich senkte Hand in Hand. 

Ich hab' Dich lieb, Du weißt es,
Ein Traum es dir gestand,
Als süße Zauberbande
Um deine Seel' erwand. 

Wir haben uns lieb alle Beide
Und lieben uns fort und fort,
Ob niemals es verrathen
Auch nur ein einzig Wort.
