Der einst er seine junge

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der einst er seine junge
Sonnige Liebe gebracht,
Die hat ihn gehen heißen,
Nicht weiter sein gedacht.

Drauf hat er heimgeführet
Ein Mädchen still und hold;
Die hat aus allen Menschen
Nur einzig ihn gewollt.

Und ob sein Herz in Liebe
Niemals für sie gebebt,
Sie hat um ihn gelitten
Und nur für ihn gelebt.
