Der Tag ist schlafen gangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Tag ist schlafen gangen, 
Mein Herz ist aufgewacht,
Und seine alten Lieder
Verklingen durch die Nacht.

O, wunderheil'ges Schweigen,
O, traumesholde Ruh',
Ihr schließ't des Tages Pforten
Mit goldnem Schlüssel zu! 

Es ruhen alle Räume,
'S ist still in Flur und Hag, 
Mein Auge schweift ins Weite,
Als wär's am hellen Tag.  

Mein Lieb,  in diesem Frieden
Sei innig dein gedacht:  
Mir einen frohen Morgen,
Dir eine gute Nacht!
