You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Dem Himmel will ich klagen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dem Himmel will ich klagen,
Mein Liebblaublümelein!
Mein Leiden und mein Zagen,
Mein Liebblaublümelein!
Das mir das Herz abbricht,
Es muß geschieden sein!
Das mich zu Grabe bringt!
Es muß geschieden sein!
Den Lieben muß ich meiden,
Mein Liebblaublümelein!
Und den ich nicht kann leiden,
Mein Liebblaublümelein!
Muß ich zu Lieb umfahn,
Es muß geschieden sein!
O Gott, was hab' ich getan!
Es muß geschieden sein!
Wie ich es auch will machen,
Mein Liebblaublümelein!
Doch alle mich verachten,
Mein Liebblaublümelein!
Wie lieb ich's allen bot,
Es muß geschieden sein!
Sie drohen mir den Tod,
Es muß geschieden sein!
Gilts denn um Liebe sterben,
Mein Liebblaublümelein!
So will ich gern verderben,
Mein Liebblaublümelein!
Mein Herz, zu guter Nacht,
Es muß geschieden sein!
An dein Herzlieb gedacht.
Es muß geschieden sein!
