Treu, süßes Mädchen, lieb' ich dich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Treu, süßes Mädchen, lieb' ich Dich !
O gib dein Herz auch mir !
Vom Leben trennt' ich leichter mich,
viel leichter als von Dir !
Drum wende Dich nicht ab, mein Lieb,
O wende Dich nicht ab;
ich werde was da kommen mag 
Dich lieben bis ans Grab !

Sieh, eh' vergißt die Lerch' ihr Lied 
beim ersten Morgenschein, 
eh' mich Dein Auge treulos sieht, 
eh' ich vergesse Dein !
Drum wende Dich nicht ab, mein Lieb', 
o wende Dich nicht ab !
Ich werde was da kommen mag 
Dich lieben bis ans Grab !
