Treue

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dein Gedenken lebt in Liedern fort;
Lieder, die der tiefsten Brust entwallen,
Sagen mir: du lebst in ihnen allen,
Und gewiß, die Lieder halten Wort.

Dein Gedenken blüht in Tränen fort;
Tränen aus des Herzens Heiligtume
Nähren tauend der Erinnrung Blume,
In dem Tau blüht dein Gedenken fort.

Dein Gedenken lebt in Träumen fort;
Träume, die dein Bild verklärt mir zeigen,
[Sagen: daß du ewig bist mein eigen]1,
Und gewiß, die Träume halten Wort.
