by Ludwig Rellstab (1799 - 1860)

In tiefer Ruh liegt um mich her
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FIN FRE GRE ITA KOR NOR POR SPA
In tiefer Ruh liegt um mich her
Der Waffenbrüder Kreis;
Mir ist das Herz so bang [und]1 schwer,
Von Sehnsucht mir so heiß.

Wie hab' ich oft so süß [geruht]2
An ihrem Busen warm!
Wie freundlich schien des Heerdes Gluth,
Lag sie in meinem Arm!

Hier, wo der [Flammen]3 düstrer Schein
Ach nur auf Waffen spielt,
Hier fühlt die Brust sich ganz allein,
Der Wehmuth Thräne quillt.

Herz! Daß der Trost Dich nicht verläßt!
[Es]4 ruft noch manche Schlacht. -
Bald ruh' ich wohl und schlafe fest,
Herzliebste - Gute Nacht!
