Dein ist mein Herz

Language: German (Deutsch) after the German (Deutsch)

Dein ist mein Herz, mein Schmerz dein eigen,
Und alle Freuden, die es sprengen,
Dein ist der Wald mit allen Zweigen,
Den Blüten allen und Gesängen.

Das Liebste, was ich mag erbeuten
Mit Liedern, die mein Herz entführten,
Ist mir ein Wort, daß sie dich freuten,
Ein stummer Blick, daß sie dich rührten.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
