Das geliebte Land

Language: German (Deutsch)

Geliebtes Land! das seine Söhne
Mit Zauberbinden an sich schließt!
Daß fern von dir, des Heimwehs Träne
Von deinem heilgen Bilde fließt.

Sie sehnen sich nach deinen Bergen
Wie Sturmbedrängte nach dem Port,
Und lassen Reichtum, Glanz und Ehre,
Denn du nur füllst des Herzens Leere.

O wär ich dort, geliebtes Land!
