Ein Alphorn hör' ich schallen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Alphorn hör' ich schallen,
Das mich von hinnen ruft;
Tönt es aus wald'gen Hallen,
Tönt es aus blauer Luft?
Tönt es von Bergeshöhe,
[Aus]1 blumenreichem Tal?
Wo ich nur geh' und stehe,
Hör' ich's in süßer Qual.
 
Bei Spiel und frohem Reigen,
Einsam mit mir allein,
Tönt's, ohne je zu schweigen,
Tönt tief in's Herz hinein.
Noch nie hab' ich gefunden
Den Ort, woher es schallt,
Und nimmer wird gesunden
Dies Herz, bis es verhallt.
