Oud troostlied

Language: Dutch (Nederlands)

'... En allen weenen:
Gij sliept ontijdig in -
Maar ik moet meenen:
Mij is dit blij gewin.

'Op verre zwerversbanen
Ging verlangen u kwijt -
Nu zie ik, blind van tranen,
U voor me altijd.

'Nu gaat u staâg gebeuren
Heel harts overvloed:
Door geheime deure
Kwammt gij mij thuis voorgoed.

'In u tot rust volkomen
Werd harts wilde wee ...
Zijt ge ons vroeg ontnomen,
't Is met mijn vreê.'
