Es rauschet in den Wassern

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es rauschet in den Wassern
Mit heimlich süßem Klang,  
Es blitzen helle Lichter 
Über die See entlang. 

Sie sagen mir von Liebe
Und einer glänzenden Frau, 
Sie zeigen mir die Stelle
Und wissen den Ton genau. 

So klingt's von ihrer Stimme
Nur schöer noch und klar,
Und es blitzen die Lichter
Von Auge ihr und Haar.
