Ich saß im Grünen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich saß im Grünen,
Am klaren Bach
Und blickte träumend
Den Wellen nach.
Und Blumen schauten
So tief hinein:
Wie muß es selig
Dort unten sein!

Und Strahlen glänzten
Durch Wipfelgrün,
Ich sah am Himmel
Die Wölkchen ziehn.
Sie zogen freundlich
Im Sonnenschein:
Wie muß es selig
Dort oben sein!

Da stand er vor mir
So morgenschön!
Kaum wagt' ich bebend
Ihn anzusehn.
Sein Auge strahlte
So tief und rein: --
Wie könnt' ich selig
Auf Erden sein!
