Ich bin ein armes, armes Kind

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich bin ein armes, armes Kind,
Denn Vater und Mutter sind todt;
Durch meine Kleider bläst der Wind,
Ich hab' kein Stücklein Brod. 
Ihr, die ihr reich und glücklich seid,
Noch Vater und Mutter habt,
O gebt mir doch ein warmes Kleid,
Ein Stücklein, das mich labt!
