Waldeinsamkeit!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Waldeinsamkeit!
Du [grünes]1 Revier,
Wie liegt so weit
Die Welt von hier!
Schlaf nur, wie bald
Kommt der Abend schön,
Durch den stillen Wald
Die Quellen gehn,
Die Mutter Gottes wacht,
Mit ihrem Sternenkleid
Bedeckt sie dich sacht
In der Waldeinsamkeit,
[Gute Nacht,]2 Gute Nacht! -


Translation(s): ENG ENG FRE
