Du lieblicher Stern
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FIN FRE
Du lieblicher Stern,
Du leuchtest [so]1 fern,
Doch hab ich dich denoch 
Von Herzen so gern.

Wie lieb ich doch dich
So herzinniglich!
Dein funkelndes Äuglein
Blickt immer auf mich.

So blick ich nach dir,
Sei's dort oder hier:
Dein freundliches Äuglein
Steht immer vor mir.

Wie nickst du mir zu
In fröhlicher Ruh!
O liebliches Sternlein,
O wär ich wie du!
