Die schönsten meiner Lieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die schönsten meiner Lieder,
Die sollen dein eigen sein,
Und wenn sie Dich umrauschen,
Gedenke meiner Pein,
Von Dir getrennt zu leben
Und Dir so nah' zu steh'n,
Dich niemals sprechen dürfen
Und täglich Dich zu seh'n.

Die schönsten meiner Lieder
Verkünden Dir nah' und fern:
"An meines Lebens Himmel
Bist du der schönste Stern!"
Doch werden sie noch klingen,
Wenn längst wir gestorben sind,
Und sagen wie ich liebte
Dich schönes, frohes Kind.
