Die Guitarre

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dir vertrau' ich all mein Sehnen,
Freundinn! die nie von mir flieht,
Ob in Lächeln , oh in Thränen
Freud und Leid vorüberzieht:

Tönt in stiller Wehmuth-Feyer
Sanft mein Lied, begleitest du
Mich harmonisch, treue Leyer,
Bringst dem Herzen neue Ruh.

Wenn von Wonne ganz durchbebet
Hoher mein Gesang sich hebt,
Wenn er auf zum Himmel strebet,
Du bist's, die ihn schön belebt.

Holde Laute, deine Saiten
Rühren tief den innern Sinn,
Lehr' mich sanft durch's Leben gleiten,
Bleib' mir Freude-Geberinn.
