Sei mir gegrüsst am Strassenrand

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sei mir gegrüsst am Strassenrand,
  Mein alter Markenstein!
Ich fahre in mein Vaterland,
  Mein Vaterland hinein!

Du Land, in dem ich strebt' und stritt,
  Wie bist du grün und schön!
Du Luft, in der ich lebt' und litt,
  Wie duftig ist dein Weh'n!

Du Strom, auf dem mein Segel schwoll,
  Wie leuchtet deine Fluth,
Du Wald, in dem mein Horn erscholl,
  Wie klingt dein Rauschen gut!

Du aber bist noch, [herziger]1 Schatz,
  Wie immer schön und süss,
Und Alles steht [am]2 alten Platz,
  Da wo ich's stehen liess.
