Die Schleppe will ich dir tragen,
Ich will deinem Wink mich weihn,
An Festen und hohen Tagen
Sollst du meine Königin sein!
Deiner Launen geheimste und kühnste
Gehorsam erfüll ich dir;
Doch leid ich in diesem Dienste
Keinen andern neben mir.
Solang ich dir diene in Ehren,
Gehöret dein Lächeln mein;
Deinen Hofstaat will ich vermehren;
Doch der Erste will ich sein.
