Unter allen Wipfeln ist Ruh

Language: German

Unter allen [Wipfeln]1 ist Ruh
in allen Zweigen hörest du
keinen Laut
die Vöglein schlafen im Walde
warte nur, warte nur balde
schläfst du auch

Unter allen Monden ist Plag
und alle Jahr und alle Tag
Das Laub verwelket im Walde
warte nur balde welkest du auch

Unter allen Sternen ist Ruh
in allen Himmeln hörest du
Die Englein spielen, das schallte
warte nur balde spielest du auch.

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.
