Es glänzt in der Muschel die Perle

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es glänzt in der Muschel die Perle,
Es blitzt von der Lilie der Tau,
Doch heller leuchtet die Thräne
In deinem Auge blau.

Am Himmel ziehen die Sterne 
Im stillen dämmerndem Blau, 
Und tropfen in dunkele Herzen 
Die Ruhe, wie Perlentau.
