Dich, teure Halle, Elisabeth's aria from Tannhäuser

Dich, teure Halle, grüss'ich wieder,
froh grüss' ich dich, geliebter Raum!
In dir erwachen seine Lieder
und wecken mich aus düstrem Traum.
Da er aus dir geschieden,
wie öd' erschienst du mir!
Aus mir entfloh der Frieden,
die Freude zog aus dir.
Wie jetzt mein Busen hoch sich hebet,
so scheinst du jetzt mir stolz und hehr.
Der mich und dich so neu belebet,
nicht länger weilt er ferne mehr,
Sei mir gegrüsst! Sei mir gegrüsst!
Du teure Halle, sei mir gegrüsst!
