Nichts ist die Welt mir

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Hebrew (עברית)

Nichts ist die Welt mir,
ihre Lust nur Tand,
denk' ich der Seligkeit,
da deine Hand
von Liebesschauern
zitternd mich umwand.

Da schlürft' ich Wein
von deiner Lippen Süße,
lustwandelte auf deiner Wangen Wiese.
Ich litt ja gern den Tod,
dich zu befrei'n,
bist ja mein Hüter in der Liebe Hain,
der Herzens Glut, sie ist ja dein,
ja einzig dein!

Von deinen Wangen
pflück ich Würze süße,
dein Aug' war Balsam mir vom Paradiese.
