Im Rosenduft

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Im Rosenduft, im reichen Blütensegen,
Im tief verborg'nen, lenzdurchsonnten Tal,
Da schweigt im Herzen jedes Leid,
Und wandelt sich zur Seligkeit,
Laß fern die Welt sich regen!

O frage nicht: Wo fließt des Glückes Bronnen?
O frage nicht: Gibt es noch größ're Freud'?
Schlag zur Natur die Augen auf,
Sie gibt allein dir Antwort drauf,
Dir kündens ihre Wonnen.
