Sagt nicht mehr: guten Morgen! guten...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sagt nicht mehr: guten Morgen! guten Tag! 
Sagt immer: guten Abend! gute Nacht! 
Denn Abend ist es um mich und die Nacht
Ist nahe mir; o wäre sie schon da! 

Komm her, mein Kind, o du mein süßes Leben! 
Nein! komm, mein Kind! o du mein süßer Tod! 
Denn alles, was mir bitter, nenn' ich Leben, 
Und was mir süß ist, nenn' ich alles Tod.
