Jeg synger for een eneste,
om ogsaa alle hörer paa,
og bare denne eneste
kan Sanden helt forstaa.
Men I, som höhrer, styrk deus Klang;
for var ej denne eneste,
som vakte nu min Tonetrang,
da fick I ingen Sang.

Er Vejen ej den beneste,
forgrenet gjennem alle her,
so er den dog den eneste,
som kommer ganske naer.
Aa, gode Hjerter, styrk hvert Ord;
so de maa bli de eneste
I hele Kjaerlighedens Kor,
som hun af Hjaertet tror.
