Ach, warum in dieser Ferne!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ach, warum in dieser Ferne!
Süßes Herz, so weit von dir?
Ach, warum so weit von dir?
Alle Sonnen, alle Sterne
Öffnen ihre Augen mir,
Nur die reinsten, tiefsten Strahlen,
Nur das klarste, blauste Licht,
Drin sich Erd' und Himmel malen,
Nur dein treues Auge nicht?
Ach, warum in dieser Ferne!
Süßes Herz, so weit von dir?
