In meines Herzens Kammer

Language: German (Deutsch)

In meines Herzens Kammer
ruh'st du in stillem Traum,
die Uhr, die geht so leise,
ich hör' es selber kaum!

Mit holden Klängen der Liebe
dein Lager ich umspann,
die schlingen den süssen Reigen um dich,
um dich den süssen Mann!

Sie lispeln dir Schlummerlieder,
du lächelst in guter Ruh!
Weisst wohl, bist in der Heimath,
du lieber Schläfer du.


Musical settings (art songs, Lieder, mélodies, (etc.), choral pieces, and other vocal works set to this text), listed by composer (not necessarily exhaustive)

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 was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
