Über die See

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über die See,
Fern über die See,
Ist mein Schatz gezogen,
[Ist]1 mein Herz
Voll Ach und Weh,
Bang ihm nachgeflogen.

Brauset das Meer,
Wild brauset das Meer,
Stürme dunkel jagen,
[Sinkt]2 die Sonn',
Die Welt wird leer,
Muß mein Herz verzagen.

Bin ich allein,
Ach, immer allein,
Meine Kräfte schwinden.
[Muß]3 zurück
In matter Pein,
Kann dich nimmer finden.
