Barcarole

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nimm du, mein Schifflein, freundliche Wiege,
Zwischen zwei Himmel rettend mich auf.
Furche die Bläue und es besiege
Tändelnde Wellen spielend dein Lauf.
Sinket und steiget wechselndes Schlages,
Plätschernde Ruder, hüpfendes Herz,
Ungleiche Kinder seligen Tages
Schenket die Liebe[:] Freude und Schmerz!

Sinket und steiget wechselndes Schlages,
Plätschernde Ruder, hüpfendes Herz,
Ungleiche Kinder seligen Tages
Schenket die Liebe Freude und Schmerz!
Günstige Lüfte, treibet nach Morgen,
Füllet die Segel, kräuselt die Flut,
Weichet, Abend, grämliche Sorgen,
Lächle mir, Hoffnung, fröhlichen Mut!

Gaukelnde Möven, bunte Libellen,
Springende Fischlein, folget der Fahrt.
Glückliche wollen mir sich gesellen,
Seit ich von Herzen glücklicher ward.
Feiert, ihr Ruder, Segel hernieder,
Lande nur sachte, gleitender Kahn.
Flutender Spiegel, siehst mich nicht wieder,
Ebne des Schiffers schwindende Bahn.
