Schlaf nun und ruhe in Träumen voll Duft

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Peri und Chor
 Schlaf nun und ruhe in Träumen voll Duft,
 Balsam'scher umweh dich die Luft,
 Als dem magischen Brand der Phönix entsteigt,
 Wenn er sein eigenes Grablied singt.
 Schlaf nun und ruh in Träumen voll Lust,
 Du, die treueste, liebendste Brust!
 Sie sprach's, und Himmelshauch durchfließt
 Von ihren Lippen diese Stelle,
 Sie schwingt den Strahlenkranz und gießt
 Auf beider Antlitz solche Helle,
 Daß wie ein Heil'genpaar sie lagen.
 Indes die Peri wacht und Licht
 Mild strahlt in ihre Todesnacht,
 Bis ihre Seelen auferwacht.
