Wenn ich müde bin einmal

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn ich müde bin einmal,
Führe, Mutter Erde, meine Seele,
Heimwärts wieder in dies stille Tal! 
Lind wie heut des Mondes Schein
Sich auf gipfelklaren Bergen wiegt
Und sich um der Felder dunklen Rain
Und die silbergrünen Wiesen schmiegt.
So bin ich dann dein, 
Wenn der Schimmer meiner Seele
Über diesem stillen Tale liegt.
