Cidli, du weinest, und ich schlummre...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Cidli, du weinest, und ich schlummre sicher,
Wo im Sande der Weg verzogen fortschleicht;
Auch wenn stille Nacht ihn umschattend decket,
Schlummr' ich ihn sicher.

Wo er sich endet, wo ein Strom das Meer wird,
Gleit' ich über den Strom, der sanfter aufschwillt;
Denn, der mich begleitet, der Gott gebots ihm!
Weine nicht, Cidli.
