Ein einzig Sternlein in den Höhn

Language: German (Deutsch)

   Ein einzig Sternlein in den Höhn-- 
Wie lachst du, arme Heide,
Mich an so frisch, so wunderschön,
Als wie die grünste Weide!

   Ein einzig Röslein, hell entfacht
Nach langem, bangem Warten.--
Gleich bist, verzaubert, du erwacht
Zum allerschönsten Garten!

   Ein einzger leiser Glockenlaut
Dort von der fernen Halde--
Gleich singen alle Vögel traut
Mir wie im grünsten Walde!

   Und dankbar muß mein Lied auf's neu
Dich, arme Heide, segnen!
Wie weiß doch Gott so mild und treu 
Uns Beiden zu begegnen!
