Gesegnete Stunde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn in die Wipfel vor dem Haus
die ersten grauen Schleier sinken
und über blauer Berge Rand
die ersten Silbersterne blinken,

dann wünschte ich, du wärst bei mir:
und über deine lieben Haare
streift' ich dir leise hin und wär'
dir seltsam nah'. Und all das Wahre,
das Gute, was ich für dich hab',
ließ' des Begehrens Brennen schwinden
und meine Liebe würde still
den Weg zu deinem Herzen finden. --

Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani
