Close My Eyes When I Am Tired

Close my eyes when I am tired
With your gentle, loving hand!
All I suffered and desired
’Neath your hand comes to an end.
As my sorrows gently part
Like the waters of the river,
With the final stir and quiver
Fillest thou my weary heart.

(after: Theodor Storm: Schliesse mir die Augen beide)
