It's such a little thing to weep

It's such a little thing to weep -
So short a thing to sigh -
And yet - by Trades- the size of these
We men and women die.

Zum Weinen braucht es oft nicht viel

Versions: #1#2
Zum Weinen braucht es oft nicht viel,
zum Seufzen, kurze Zeit -
doch, auch wenn’s geht zum letzten Ziel,
sind sie uns ein Geleit.
