The Lied, Art Song, and Choral Texts Archive


Language: German

Leise streift die Welle ans Boot,
Flüstert den Sang der Flut,
Rings die Berge im Abendrot
Halten den See in Hut.

Wie so oft im Wellentanz
Trug mich mein wonniger See!
Alles deckte der Lenzesglanz,
Ahnen und Bangen und Weh!

Tausend Stürme sind nun vertost,
Mancher noch tückisch harrt;
Doch der Wind bläst so fröhlich von Ost,
Ladet zu fröhlicher Fahrt.

Trag mich, Schifflein, zum duftigen Strand,
Einsam und rosenumhegt.
Dort im lieblichen Wunderland
Ahnen und Bangen sich legt.

Notes about green, red, and white dots

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
