Wem säng' ich Lieder, wenn nicht dir?
Wem schüf' ich Weisen, träumt' Gesänge,
Wenn nicht Dir, die mir im Herzen steht,
Als die Herrin alle Klänge?
Lass dir's von allen Liedern sagen,
Dass sie in deinem Namen sind,
Und hör in Jubel oder Klagen
Den Lobgesang auf Dich, mein Kind!
Nein, Mutter, mir! Nein, Geliebte!
Mein Alles, du! Mein Lebenssinn!
Du, die noch nie mein Herz betrübte,
Nimm, was ich sang und singe hin.
