1. Gruss an die Nacht [sung text not yet checked]

Wie hast du mich so müde gemacht,
O Tag, mit deiner leuchtenden Pracht,
Mit deiner Farben buntem Schein,
Mit deinen rauschenden Melodei'n.
Willkommen, o Nacht, und decke du,
Die Erde mit deinem Schleier zu.

Laß schwinden die Farben, die Töne verweh'n,
Laß alles Leben um mich vergehn,
Und lasse mich träumen, allein mit dir,
Vom leuchtenden Himmel, hoch über mir.
[Willkommen, o Nacht, und decke du,
Die Erde mit deinem Schleier zu.]1

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
