3. 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

4. Nachtlied [sung text not yet checked]

Der Mond kommt still gegangen
Mit seinem [goldnen]1 Schein,
Da schläft [in]2 holdem Prangen 
Die müde Erde ein.

Im Traum die Wipfel weben,
Die Quellen rauschen sacht;
Singende Engel durchschweben
Die blaue Sternennacht

Und auf den Lüften schwanken
Aus manchem treuen Sinn
Viel tausend Liebesgedanken
Über die Schläfer hin.

Und drunten im Tale, da funkeln
Die Fenster von Liebchens Haus;
Ich aber blicke im Dunkeln
Still in die Welt hinaus.
