Ferne, ferne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ferne, ferne
Flammenhelle Sterne,
Gehen nieder, kommen wieder;
Blicken auf mich traulich nieder.
Weit aus blauer Ferne
Schimmern nur die Sterne.

Ferne, ferne
Flammenhelle Sterne,
Steigen nimmer zu mir nieder,
Bringen nimmer Frieden wieder:
Weit aus blauer Ferne
Schimmern nur die Sterne.

Ferne, ferne
Flammenhelle Sterne,
Immer heller wird ihr Blinken,
Wollen still hinauf mich winken:
Frieden ist nicht ferne,
Wohnt auf jenem Sterne.
