Lilienblüthe!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Lilienblüthe! 
Mädchen schön und zart! 
Gott behüte 
Deines Lebens Fahrt! 
Ach, es muß geschieden sein,
Und für alle Liebe Dein 
Hat das scheidekranke 
Herz ein letztes Wort allein: 
  Danke! 

Sterne droben! 
Goldne Himmelslust! 
Mild erhoben 
Habt ihr mir die Brust.
Als des Glückes Frucht mir schwoll,
Daß sie golden glänzen soll,
Gosset ihr das blanke 
Gold herab so wonnevoll! 
  Danke! 

Hoffnung, süße! 
Mild von deinem Wehn
Scheidegrüße 
Athmen Wiedersehn. 
Hoffnung, aller Schmerzen Ruh'! 
Meine Seele hältst ja Du 
Wie der Stab die Ranke! 
Singend ruft mein Herz Dir zu:
  Danke!
