Auf ewig dein! Wenn Berg' und Meere...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf ewig dein! Wenn Berg' und Meere trennen,
Wenn Stürme dräun, 
Wenn Weste säuseln oder Wüsten brennen:
Auf ewig dein!

Beim Kerzenglanz im stolzen Marmorsaale,
Beim Silberschein
Des Abendmonds im stillen Hirtenthale:
Auf ewig dein!

Senkt einst mein Genius die Fackel nieder,
Mich zu befrein,
Dann hallts noch im gebrochnen Herzen wieder:
Auf ewig dein!

Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
