Als ich dich kaum geseh'n

Language: German (Deutsch)

Als ich dich kaum geseh'n,
Mußt es mein Herz gestehn,
Ich könnt dir nimmermehr

Fällt nun der Sternenschein
Nachts in mein Kämmerlein,
Lieg ich und schlafe nicht
Und denke dein.

Ist doch die Seele mein
So ganz geworden dein,
Zittert in deiner Hand,
Tu ihr kein Leid!

Translation(s): ENG ENG FRE
