Die Gletscher leuchten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Gletscher leuchten 
Im Mondenlicht, 
Und Thränen feuchten 
Mein Angesicht.
Die Stürme sausen,
Die Möven schrein,
Die Wogen brausen,
Ich denke dein!

Das Land entschwindet 
Schon fern dem Blick,
Doch zu dir findet 
Mein Herz zurück;
Ich will ihm Schwingen
Des Liedes leihn,
Es soll dir singen: 
Ich denke dein!
