Daß du mich liebst, daß wußt' ich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Daß du mich liebst, daß wußt' ich,
Ich hatt' es längst entdeckt;
Doch als du mir's gestanden,
Hat es mich tief erschreckt.

Ich stieg wohl auf die Berge
Und jubelte und sang;
Ich ging ans Meer und weinte
Beim Sonnenuntergang.

Mein Herz ist wie die Sonne
So flammend anzusehn,
Und in ein Meer von Liebe
Versinkt es groß und schön.
