In Liebeslust, in Sehnsuchtsqual

Language: German

In Liebeslust, in Sehnsuchtsqual,
  O höre mich!
Eins sing' ich nur viel tausendmal
  Und nur für dich!

Ich sing' es laut durch Wald und Feld,
  O höre mich!
Ich sing' es durch die ganze Welt:
  Ich liebe dich!

Und träumend noch in stiller Nacht
  Muß singen ich,
Ich singe, wenn mein Aug' erwacht:
  Ich liebe dich!

Und wenn mein [Aug']1 im Tode bricht,
  O sähst du mich!
Du sähst, daß noch [dies]2 Auge spricht:
  Ich liebe dich!

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.
