You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 17, we are $5,700 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Sonnenlicht ist schlafen gangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sonnenlicht ist schlafen gangen  
In des Abendrothes Schein. 
Mond und Stern am Himmel prangen, 
Leuchtend in dein Kämmerlein. 
Mond und Sterne 
Wachen ferne. 
Durch den Lindenbaum 
Kling' in deinen Traum 
Leise, leise das Lied der Liebe, 
Der Liebe, die für dich nur wacht:  
Gute Nacht!  

Treue Liebe schlummert nimmer, 
Wenn sie recht von Herzen minnt;  
Treue Liebe schaffet immer, 
Treue Liebe sorgt und sinnt. 
Mond und Sterne
Wachen ferne. 
Durch den Lindenbaum 
Kling' in deinen Traum 
Leise, leise das Lied der Liebe, 
Der Liebe, die für dich nur wacht:
Gute Nacht!
