2. Nun die Schatten dunkeln [sung text not yet checked]

[Nun]1 die Schatten dunkeln,
Stern [an]2 Stern erwacht:
Welch ein Hauch der Sehnsucht
Flutet [in der]3 Nacht!

Durch das [Meer]4 der Träume
Steuert ohne Ruh',
[Steuert]5 meine Seele
Deiner Seele zu.

Die sich dir ergeben,
Nimm sie ganz dahin!
Ach, du weißt, daß nimmer
Ich mein eigen bin.

3. Weil' auf mir, du dunkles Auge [sung text not yet checked]

Weil' auf mir, du dunkles Auge,
Übe deine ganze Macht,
Ernste, milde, [träumerische]1,
Unergründlich süße Nacht!

Nimm mit deinem Zauberdunkel
Diese Welt von hinnen mir,
Daß du über meinem Leben
Einsam schwebest für und für.

4. Du bist die Ruh [sung text not yet checked]

Du bist die Ruh,
Der Friede mild,
Die Sehnsucht du,
Und was sie stillt.

Ich weihe dir
[Voll]1 Lust und Schmerz
Zur Wohnung [hier]2
Mein Aug' und Herz.

Kehr' [ein bei mir]3,
Und schließe du
Still hinter dir
Die [Pforten]4 zu.

Treib andern Schmerz
Aus dieser Brust.
Voll sey dies Herz
[Von]5 deiner Lust.

Dies Augenzelt
Von deinem Glanz
Allein erhellt,
O füll' es ganz.

5. Schließe mir die Augen beide [sung text not yet checked]

[Schließe mir]1 die Augen beide
mit den lieben Händen zu;
geht doch alles, was ich leide,
unter deiner Hand zur Ruh.
Und wie leise sich der Schmerz
Well' [um]2 Welle schlafen [leget]3,
[wie]4 der letzte Schlag sich [reget]5,
füllest du mein ganzes Herz.

6. So komme, was da kommen mag [sung text not yet checked]

So komme, was da kommen mag!
So lang du lebest, ist es Tag.
Und geht es in die Welt hinaus,
Wo du mir bist, bin ich zu Haus.
Ich seh' dein liebes Angesicht,
Ich sehe die Schatten der Zukunft nicht.
