Lebe wohl, du meine weiße Taube

Language: German (Deutsch)

Lebe wohl, du meine weiße Taube,
Lebe wohl, du meine teure Seele!
Sage, welches ist dein fester Glaube?
Welches deine Wünsche und Befehle?
«Einen Glauben hab' ich: deine Treue;
Einen Wunsch: dich wieder anzuschauen;
Und Befehle: was auch je uns dräue,
Meiner ew'gen Liebe zu vertrauen.»

Translation(s): ENG FRE
