Goldnes Liebchen, Sonne, Perle, Blume

Language: German (Deutsch)

Goldnes Liebchen, Sonne, Perle, Blume,
Und ihr Augen, liebe Weihnachtslichter!
Ja, wär' ich der Kaiser aller Dichter,
Dichtet' ich euch bald zu Ehr und Ruhme!
Soll mein Lied verklären dich auf Erden,
Nicht, wie jetzt, du meine Lieder weihn,
Müßtest du erst minder herrlich werden,
Oder ich ein größrer Dichter sein!
