Ja, es gibt ein schönes Sehnen,
das wie aus der tiefsten Nacht
in dem Herzen aufgewacht,
greift nach Waffen, findet Tränen;
viele lieben, viele wähnen,
daß Liebe nur Lust dem Herzen
schenken soll und keine Schmerzen:
Alle Farben müssen fließen,
wenn ein licht sich soll ergießen
aus dem goldnen Brand der Kerzen.
