Du holdes Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du holdes Mädchen, 
O weine nicht
Und trockne die Thränen
Vom Angesicht.

Und welkt die Rose 
Auf herbstlicher Flur,
Der Frühling wecket
Sie schöner nur.

Vertraue den Sternen,
Vertrau der Zeit;
Es weichen die Nebel,
Es flieht das Leid. 

Aus schwarzen Wolken
Nach tiefer Nacht
Da leuchtet die Sonne
In doppelter Pracht.

So blüht auch Liebe
In neuem Licht;
Drum laß das Klagen
Und weine nicht!

Ich sing' in Schlummer
Dich leis' und fein,
Mit meinen Strahlen
Wieg' ich dich ein.
