Wie hast du mich so müde gemacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie hast du mich so müde gemacht,
O Tag, mit deiner leuchtenden Pracht,
Mit deiner Farben buntem Schein,
Mit deinen rauschenden Melodei'n.
Willkommen, o Nacht, und decke du,
Die Erde mit deinem Schleier zu.

Laß schwinden die Farben, die Töne verweh'n,
Laß alles Leben um mich vergehn,
Und lasse mich träumen, allein mit dir,
Vom leuchtenden Himmel, hoch über mir.
[Willkommen, o Nacht, und decke du,
Die Erde mit deinem Schleier zu.]1
