Im Abendstrahl
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Da drüben im Abendstrahle
Steht glitzernd des Liebchens Haus!
Ich seh' es im tiefen Tale,
Doch, nimmer schaut's Liebchen heraus!

Es tun wohl vom Sonnenschimmer
Die Augen mir so weh,
Daß ich muß weinen immer,
So oft ich hinüber seh'!
