O Sonne, liebe Sonne

Language: German (Deutsch)

O Sonne, liebe Sonne,
Verdecke deinen Pfad,
Wer kann den Glanz ermessen,
Wer kann den Glanz vergessen,
Wenn nun der Winter naht.
O Sonne, liebe Sonne,
Verdecke nun dein Licht!
Die Lieb' mit ihrem Blicke,
Die Lieb' mit ihrem Glücke,
Ach, du erreichst sie nicht!
