Mein wundes Herz verlangt nach milder...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein wundes Herz verlangt nach milder Ruh',
O hauche sie ihm ein!
Es fliegt dir weinend, bange schlagend zu --
O hülle du es ein!

Wie wenn ein Strahl durch schwere Wolken bricht,
So winkest du ihm zu:
O lächle fort mit deinem milden Licht!
Mein Pol, mein Stern bist du!


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
