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!

Der Abendschlummer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Frauenchor:
 Der Abendschlummer
 Umarmt die Flur,
 In Liebeskummer
 Wacht Röslein nur.

 Sie schaut hinein
 In die Mondesnacht
 Und hat voll Sehnen
 An ihn gedacht.

 Da klingt sein Lied
 Heraus vom Wald,
 dass Frühlingslust
 Ins Herz ihr schallt.

Tenor-solo:
 Ich weiss ein Röslein prangen
 Im holden Frühlingsschein,
 Das möchte so gern ich fragen:
 Willst du mein Röslein sein?

Rose:
 Schlaf wohl, du lieber Sängersmann!

Tenor-solo:
 Und wenn ich komm'zu fragen,
 Da schaut mich's freundlich an,
 Da ist's mit einem Male
 Um meinen Mut getan.

Rose:
 Schlaf wohl, du lieber Sängersmann!
 Dein Röslein blüht für dich.

Tenor-solo:
 Sagt dir nicht das Herz im Busen
 Du Rose voll Frühlingsschein:

Rose:
 Komm' nur recht bald, Herzliebster fein
 Komm' bald zu ihm und sprich:

Tenor-solo:
 "Ich will nie eines And'ren
 Denn nur sein Röslein sein."

Rose:
 Ich will dein Röslein werden,
 Mein Frühling werde du,
 Komm', weck' mit deinen Küssen
 Mich aus der Winterruh!

Tenor-solo:
 Sagt dir nicht das Herz im Busen
 Du Rose voll Frühlingsschein:
 "Ich will nie eines And'ren
 Denn nur sein Röslein sein."
