Wenn ein müder Leib begraben

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn ein müder Leib begraben,
Klingen Glocken ihn zur Ruh,
Und die Erde schließt die Wunde
Mit den schönsten Blumen zu.

Wenn die Liebe wird begraben,
Singen Lieder sie zur Ruh,
Und die Wunde bringt die Blumen --
Doch das Grab erst schließt sie zu.
