Schon wenn ich dir nahe bin

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schon wenn ich dir nahe bin,
Ueberfüllt mich, ach, ein Zittern,
Meine Kräfte sinken hin
Wie die Halme vor den Schnittern.

Wenn die Stunde näher rückt,
Wo ich darf dich Stern erwarten,
Singt, so hoch wie ich entzückt,
Eine Amsel in dem Garten.
