Die schwarze Laute

Language: German (Deutsch)

Aus dem Rosenstocke 
Vom Grabe des Christ
Eine schwarze Laute 
Gebauet ist;
Der [wurden]1 grüne Reben 
Zu Saiten 
O wehe du, wie selig sang,
So erossüß, so jesusbang,
Die schwarze Rosenlaute.

Ich hörte sie singen 
In maienlichter Nacht,
Da bin ich zur Liebe
In Schmerzen erwacht,
Da wurde meinem Leben 
Die Sehnsucht 
O wehe du, wie selig sang,
So jesussüß, so erosbang,
Die schwarze Rosenlaute!
