So bald ein Herz die Liebe fand

Language: German (Deutsch)

So bald ein Herz die Liebe fand,
Blüht ihm die wunderschöne Welt,
Es schlingt ihr rosenrothes Band,
Sich durch der Hoffnung grünes Zelt.

Und wenn ein Herz die Liebe fand,
Ist kalt und nüchtern diese Welt,
Sie kennt ja nicht den lichten Brand,
Der seine innre Welt erhellt.

Ja, wenn ein Herz die Liebe fand,
Dann fand es seine eigne Welt,
Es fand ein unentdecktes Land,
Drin Seligkeit die Knospen schwellt.
