O komme, holde Sommernacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

O komme, holde Sommernacht,
Verschwiegen;
Dich hat die Liebe recht gemacht
Zum Siegen!

Da brechen manche Knospen los,
Verstohlen,
Da öffnen ihren süßen Schoß
Violen;

Da neigt ihr Haupt im Dämmerschein
Die Rose,
Da wird mein Liebchen auch noch mein,
Das lose!


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
