Lied aus der Ferne 

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

Dir zu eröffnen
Mein Herz verlangt mich,
An deinem Herzen,
Darnach verlangt mich;
Wie blickt so traurig
Die Welt mich an!
Alle Gedanken
Sehnen und ranken
Sich um die Liebe
Meines Geliebten!

Wie Morgenkerzen
Blicken herein,
Ach, seine Leiden,
sie sind auch mein.
Mein Leben will ich
Nur zum Geschäfte
Von seiner Liebe
Von heut an machen,
Ich denke seiner,
Mir blutet das Herz.
Kraft hab ich keine
Als ihn zu lieben,
So recht im Stillen;
Was will das werden,
Will ihn umarmen
Und kann es nicht.
