2. Du bist wie eine Blume [sung text not yet checked]

Du bist wie eine Blume
[so hold und schön und rein;]1
ich schau' dich an, und Wehmut
schleicht mir ins Herz hinein.

Mir ist, als ob ich die Hände
aufs Haupt dir legen sollt',
[betend]2, daß [Gott dich]3 erhalte
[so rein und schön und hold.]1

3. Frühlingslied [sung text not yet checked]

Leise [zieht]1 durch mein Gemüt
Liebliches Geläute,
Klinge, kleines Frühlingslied,
Kling hinaus ins Weite.

[Kling]2 hinaus bis an das Haus,
Wo die [Blumen]3 sprießen,
Wenn du eine Rose schaust,
Sag, ich laß sie grüßen.

4. Herz, mein Herz, sei nicht beklommen [sung text not yet checked]

Herz, mein Herz, sei nicht beklommen,
und ertrage dein Geschick,
neuer Frühling gibt zurück,
was der Winter dir genommen.

Und wie viel ist dir geblieben,
und wie schön ist noch die Welt!
Und, mein Herz, was dir gefällt,
alles, alles darfst du lieben!

5. Nacht liegt auf den fremden Wegen [sung text not yet checked]

Nacht liegt auf den fremden Wegen,
Krankes Herz und müde Glieder; -
Ach, da fließt, wie stiller Segen,
Süßer Mond, dein Licht hernieder;

Süßer Mond, mit deinen Strahlen
Scheuchest du das nächt'ge Grauen;
Es zerrinnen meine Qualen,
Und die Augen übertauen.

6. Mag da draußen Schnee sich türmen [sung text not yet checked]

Mag da draußen Schnee sich türmen,
Mag es hageln, mag es stürmen,
Klirrend [an mein Fenster]1 schlagen,
Nimmer will ich mich beklagen!
Denn ich trage in der Brust
Liebchens Bild und Frühlingslust.
