Wieder möcht' ich dir begegnen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wieder möcht' ich Dir begegnen,
Wieder schauen Deinen Blick;
Aber was auch mein Geschick,
Deine liebe Seele will ich segnen.

Leben möcht' ich Dir zu Füßen,
Blumen streuen vor Dich hin,
Aber, ob ich ferne bin,
Deine liebe Seele will ich grüßen.

[Bleib]1 ich ewig auch vertrieben,
Meinem reinsten Glücke fern,
Deine Seele ist mein Stern,
Deine liebe Seele will ich lieben.
