Sie haben mich gequälet

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sie haben mich gequälet,
Geärgert blau und blaß,
Die einen mit ihrer Liebe,
Die andern mit ihrem Haß.

Sie haben das Brot mir vergiftet,
Sie gossen mir Gift ins Glas,
Die einen mit ihrer Liebe,
Die andern mit ihrem Haß.

Doch sie, die mich am meisten
Gequält, geärgert, betrübt,
Die hat mich nie gehasset,
Und hat mich nie geliebt.



Translation(s): ENG ENG HEB ENG FRE FRE FRE
