Wenn alles schläft in stiller Nacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn alles schläft in stiller Nacht,
Die Liebe wacht.
Sie wandelt leise von Haus zu Haus,
Und teilt die schönsten Gaben aus;
Sie bringet Trost für altes Leid,
Bringt neue Lust und Fröhlichkeit. -
Laß, Liebe, deine Gabe mich sein,
Flicht mich in deine Träume mit ein,
Daß d i e, nach der mein Herz verlanget
Und sehnsuchtsglühend banget,
Im Träume mich sieht
Und hört mein Lied.
