Himmelsbotschaft

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Frühlingswind pocht an den Toren:
Tu auf das Herz; ich bin das Glück!
Was du im Winterleid verloren,
Bring ich mit Jubel dir zurück.

Auch deine Mutter läßt dich grüßen - -
Hör nur den kleinen losen Fink,
Der nimmermüd an seiner süßen
Verträumten Himmelsbotschaft hing!

Nun laß die Trauermelodieen,
Und sei des lichten Lebens froh;
Komm mit, wir wollen heimwärts ziehen - -
Ich bin das Glück, das dir entfloh!
