Edelweiss

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich klimme verlorene Steige,
die nur der Hirte weiss,
und über den Felsensträngen
brech ich das Edelweiss.

Tief unten im weiten Tale
erblick ich am Bühel dein Haus;
deine Tür ist mir verschlossen:
wem bring ich meinen Strauss.

Es steht Mariens Bildnis
hoch über dem wilden Stein;
zu ihren Füssen trag ich
die Blumen und denke dein.
