Wie singt die Lerche schön

Language: German

Wie singt die Lerche schön
Im Tal und auf den Höh'n,
Wenn der Morgen graut,
Und die Blümlein 
  Frischbetaut,
Harren auf den Sonnenschein!

So sing, mein Herz, nun auch
Beim frischen Morgenhauch.
Hast du auch gewacht
Unter Gram und Pein
  Diese Nacht --
Dein auch harrt ein Sonnenschein.

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, it 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.
