Stella peregrina

Language: German (Deutsch)

So wie man Sterne findet, deren Bahn
Den Erdkreis streift auf Nimmerwiedersehen,
Wohl deshalb nur, daß ihr Vorübergehen
Uns habe Schmerz und Heimweh angethan,

Zog Deiner Liebe tiefe Melodie
An mir vorbei, zu Gott zurückzuschweben,
Und in der ewigen Melancholie
Meiner Gedanken ewig fortzuleben.
