Ein Wort von deinem Munde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Wort von deinem Munde,
Das mir herüber klang,
Tönt mir wie eine Kunde
Von goldnem Märchensang.
Durch meine Seele rauschen
Die goldnen Klänge all,
Und alle Tiefen lauschen
Dem süßen Wiederhall.

Ein Blick von deinem Auge,
Mein ganzer Himmel du! 
Bringt mit Versöhnungshauche 
Mein ganzes Herz zur Ruh.
So schicken seelge Mächte 
Vom blauen Himmelsthor 
Durch warme Sommernächte 
Ein leuchtend Meteor.

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.
