An den Mond

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie blickst du hell und rein, 
O Mond, zur Welt hinein! 
Ob Wolken dich necken,
Dich wollen bedecken,
Du blickst doch hell und rein
Zur weiten Welt hinein.

Du hast schon manche Nacht,
O Mond, bei mir gewacht;
Mein Klagen gemindert,
Mein Leiden gelindert,
Hast mild mich angelacht,
Hast fröhlich mich gemacht.

O du des Friedens Bild,
O Mond, so hell und mild! 
Wie dort auf die Welle 
Der silbernen Quelle, 
Blick in mein Herz hinein 
Mit deinem milden Schein!
