Es tönen die Hörner von ferne herüber

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es tönen die Hörner von ferne herüber,
Die [Düfte]1 des Abends umwehen mich mild!
Der Himmel verschleiert sich trüber und trüber,
Bald decket nun Dämmrung das ganze Gefild.

Des Tages Verwirrungen, Wünsche und Sorgen,
Sie lösen sich leise im [wechselnden]2 Raum;
Doch bleibet, was tief in der Seele verborgen,
Die Liebe, geheiligt im seligsten Traum.

Verhallen auch jenseits die Töne der Freude;
[Uns]3 bleibet der Liebe beglückender Ton,
Er sei es, woran meine Seele sich weide,
Bis einst mit dem Leben die Liebe entfloh'n.
