wikipedia:
The opening words and refrain of Ellen's song, namely "Ave Maria" (Latin, "Hail Mary"), may have led to the idea of adapting Schubert's melody as a setting for the full text of the traditional Roman Catholic prayer Ave Maria. The Latin version of the Ave Maria is now so frequently used with Schubert's melody, that it has led to the misconception that he originally wrote the melody as a setting for the Ave Maria.

28. it has an opus number, so I think the answer is no.

I'll give y'all another question because my answer is to 28 isn't definitive. though my opus number info is probably mote helpful than a real answer.

No way, that was a question, not a guess. There are a whole bunch of gesang and night music lieders.

Well, it seems every opus number includes at least 3-4 songs. We'd have done better asking if the lyricist was X, Y, or Z for example

you're right, it's wrong.

the answer is:

Der Leiermann (The Organ grinder) from Die Winterreise by Franz Schubert. the Winterreise is op. 89, D. 911

the song is quite weird and minimalistic. not much happens. it's gives it a strong sense of desolation.

My guess would have been "The Crow" (not sure on the official German name of the song and D number). I heard this song last week, I think it's my first Schubert song that I've heard.

I rejected the Winterreise because they are written for tenor and they are the y are the words of young men. While it's true they are often sung by sopranos it is a disservice to say they are written for 'soprano'. 1/2 true.
