In der Ferne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nun bin ich fern von dir, mein Lieb,
Getrennt durch Berg und Tal,
Jetzt denke ich, das Herz so schwer,
An dich viel tausendmal!

Viel tausendmal gedenk ich jetzt
Der jungen Liebe Zeit,
Wo ich dir manchen Tag gezürnt
In selbst geschaffnem Leid!

Dass ich dir zürnte manchen Tag,
Das macht mir bittre Qual.
Vergib, mein süßes Lieb, vergib,
Doch ach! Nun trennt uns Berg und Tal!
