Schönes Kind auf dem Altane

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schönes Kind auf dem Altane,
Bist nur Einer zu vergleichen,
Die auf Himmelswolken thront,
Wie sie zeigt die Kirchenfahne,
Ihr zu Füßen schwebt der Mond.

Ihr zu Füßen schwebt der Mond,
Ueber ihrem Haupt die Sonne
Strahlt herab in goldnem Scheine;
Nie ein schönres Antlitz sah ich
Als das Ihre und das Deine.
