O weh' des Scheidens, das er that

Language: German (Deutsch)

[O]1 weh' des Scheidens, das er that,
Da er mich ließ im Sehnen!
[O]1 weh' des Bittens, wie er bat,
Des Weinens seiner Thränen!
Er sprach zu mir: Dein Trauern laß!
Und schied doch selbst in Schmerzen.
Von seinen Tränen ward ich naß,
Daß kühl mir's ward im Herzen.
