Komm, stiller Abend, nieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Komm, stiller Abend, nieder,
Auf unsre kleine Flur,
Dir tönen unsre Lieder!
Wie schön bist du Natur!

Schon steigt die Abendröthe,
Herab in's [kühle]1 Thal,
[Schon glänzt auf unsrer Flöte]2,
Der Sonne letzter Strahl.

All überall herrscht Schweigen,
Nur schwingt der Vögel Chor
Noch aus den dunkeln Zweigen
Den Nachtgesang empor.
