Liebeshymnus

Language: German

Heil jenem Tag, der dich geboren,
heil ihm, da ich zuerst dich sah!
In deiner Augen Glanz verloren
steh' ich, ein sel'ger Träumer, da.

Mir scheint der Himmel aufzugehn,
den ich von ferne nur geahnt,
und eine Sonne darf ich sehn,
daran die Sehnsucht nur gemahnt.

Wie schön mein Bild in diesem Blicke!
In diesem Blick mein Glück wie groß!
Und flehend ruf' ich zum Geschicke:
O weile, weile, wandellos!

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 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.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
