Das sind die stillen Wasser

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das sind die stillen Wasser,
Das ist die laute Welt.
Ich möcht' das Leben lassen,
Die Lieb' ist mir vergällt.
 
"Willst in die Wellen tauchen,
Laß dich nicht reun dein Kleid.
Da unten fällt vom Herzen,
Was dich beschwert zur Zeit.
 
Da werden stumm die Seufzer,
Wie Fischlein auf dem Grund.
Das sind die stillen Wasser,
Die machen dich ganz gesund."
