Stand ein junges Veilchen auf der Weiden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Stand ein junges Veilchen auf der Weiden,
Lieb und herzig in sich und bescheiden!
Und ein wackrer Jüngling über Land kam hin
Da das Veilchen stand!
Und er sah das Veilchen auf der Weiden,
Lieb und herzig in sich und bescheiden,
Sah es an mit Liebe und mit Lust,
Wünscht es sich an seine Brust!

Heute wird das Blümchen, das Veilchen ihm gegeben!
Dass er's trag' an seiner Brust durch's Leben!
Und ein Kreis von edlen Menschen
Steht ernst und feiert mit Gebet!
Seid denn glücklich! Gott mit euch, ihr Beide!
Seine Sonn' am Himmel schein euch Freude,
Und in eurer Freud' und in Eurem Schmerz
Seine ew'ge Sonne Euch in's Herz!
