"Ave Maria"

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Mädchen — Ave Maria —
liebt wie der bleiche Mond
was über allen Wolken
im Schoß der Ruhe wohnt.

Die Liebe will ihr Opfer
und spricht das Mädchen an:
Sie hat — Gratia plena —
den Schleier angetan.

Im Schleier ist die Liebe — 
Ora pro nobis — tot!
Ihr Mädchen, traut dem Mond nicht,
der euch zu ruhn gebot!
