Die Nachtigall am Fenster

Language: German (Deutsch)

Glück zu! Glück zu!
Und [selige]1 Ruh!
Was bang sich gesehnet, nun ist's vereint.
Ade! Ade!
Du bitteres Weh!
Die Thränen all sind ausgeweint.

Gute Nacht! Gute Nacht!
Die Ros' erwacht,
Sie ruft mich mit Düften zum Lindenbaum.
Im Vollmondschein
Schlaft ein! Schlaft ein!
Und träumet süßen, seligen Traum.
