Sonne der Sonnen, ich grüsse dich!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ob mir der Wonnen
schönste verblich.
Sonne der Sonnen,
ich grüsse dich!
Licht meines Lebens,
Ziel meines Strebens,
Sonne der Sonnen,
ich grüsse dich.

Weil ich im Finstern, 
ferne dem Licht,
suche den Frieden, 
finde ihn nicht,
gibt aus der Weste 
freundlich Geleite,
Sonne der Sonnen, 
dein Angesicht!

Längst von dir ferne, 
blieb ich dir nah',
weiss auch mein Herz 
nicht wie das geschah.
Licht meines Lebens,
Ziel meines Strebens,
Sonne der Sonnen,
bleib' ewig nah'.
