Süß von Zitherklang umfangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Süß von Zitherklang umfangen,
Kühl von Blüthen überhangen,
Stillen Aug's mit glüh'nden Wangen, 
Schlaf, mein holdes Leben, 
Schlaf Du ein.
Leise flüstern meine Saiten,
Leise murmelt Bächleins Gleiten,
Wälder rauschen ganz von weiten,
Alles, holdes Leben, 
Singt Dich ein.
