1. Liebe [sung text not yet checked]

  Hinaus ins Weite!
  Frühling kommt bald.
  Durch Schneegebreite
  Zum Fichtenwald!
  An stürzenden Bächen
  Schwindelnde Bahn,
  Durch sausende Wipfel
  Zum Fels, zum Gipfel
  Hinauf, hinan!

Sauge, durstiger Wind, nur, sauge
Mir die stürzende Träne vom Auge,
Leg' an die brennende Stirne dich an!

  Ach, nach dem Trauern,
  Dem dumpfen Schmerz
  Wie löst dies Schauern
  Selig mein Herz!
  O rastlos Drängen,
  Willst du gewaltsam
  Die Brust zersprengen?
  Ich kenne dich --
Liebe, Liebe, du kommst unaufhaltsam
Noch einmal, Herrliche, über mich!

2. Dein Bildnis wunderselig [sung text not yet checked]

Dein Bildnis wunderselig
Hab ich im Herzensgrund,
Das sieht so frisch und fröhlich
Mich an zu jeder Stund'.

Mein Herz still in sich singet
Ein altes schönes Lied,
Das in die Luft sich schwinget
Und zu dir eilig zieht.

3. Kehr' ein bei mir [sung text not yet checked]

Du bist die Ruh,
Der Friede mild,
Die Sehnsucht du,
Und was sie stillt.

Ich weihe dir
[Voll]1 Lust und Schmerz
Zur Wohnung hier
Mein Aug' und Herz.

Kehr' [ein bei mir]2,
Und schließe du
Still hinter dir
Die Pforten zu.

Treib andern Schmerz
Aus dieser Brust.
Voll sey dies Herz
[Von]3 deiner Lust.

Dies Augenzelt
Von deinem Glanz
Allein erhellt,
O füll' es ganz.
