Der toten Großmutter

Language: Swiss German (Schwizerdütsch)

Großmüetterli im Himmel,
wie han i di so gärn!
All Obig wenn's tuet dunkle
und fürchunt Stärn um Stärn,
denn suechi mir von allne
de schönst und heiterst us:
er stoht so lieb und fründli
grad über eusem Hus.
I luege, wiener lüchtet
uf siner höche Wacht;
denn rüefi lislig ufe:
"Großmüetterli, Guetnacht!"
