Weiße Lilie, meine Lilie

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Polish (Polski)

Weiße Lilie, meine Lilie, 
einsam traurig weil ich hier;
nach dem Garten, wo du [blühest]1,
send' ich tausend Grüße dir.

Ohne dich, o meine Blume, 
trübt sich meines Auges Schein,
fern von dir, o meine Blume, 
träum ich nur von dir allein.

Trübt die Sehnsucht mir das Auge, 
trübt sich doch die Seele nicht,
nur [verklärter flammt]2 sie leuchtend 
in der Liebe reinstem Licht.
