Nun liegt im Schlafe still die Welt...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nun liegt im Schlafe still die Welt umher,
Nur ich allein kann keine Ruhe finden,
Von Liebesgram ist mir das Herz zu schwer,
Und niemals, niemals wird er daraus schwinden.

Nur wenn dereinst ich scheide von der Erde,
Flieht auch die Pein dahin mit meinem Leben,
Warum o Herr, daß sie zur Qual mir werde,
Hast du mir Armen diese Lust gegeben?!
