Einst hielt ich Dich umwunden

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Azerbaijani (Azərbaycan dili)

Einst hielt ich Dich umwunden
Mit jugendstarkem Arm:
Die Jugend ist [verschwunden]1,
Doch schlägt mein Herz noch warm.

In meinem Lebensringe
Bist Du der Edelstein,
Und alles was ich singe,
Sing ich nur Dir allein!
