An meine Zither

Language: German (Deutsch)

Singe1 in heiliger Nacht,
Du meines Herzens Vertraute,
Freundliche Zither, ein Lied
Hier wo die Liebliche wohnt.

Sanft umflüstre dein Ton
Den süßen Traum der Geliebten,
Und des Sängers Bild
Zaubre der Schlummer ihr vor.

Ach! wie gleicht dir mein Herz;
Da sind die Saiten Gefühle,
Und ist es die Liebe nicht auch,
Die es zum Wohllaut gestimmt?
