Durch eine ganze Nacht sich nahe seyn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Durch eine ganze Nacht sich [nahe]1 seyn,
So Hand in Hand, so Arm [im]2 Arme weilen,
So viel empfinden, ohne mitzutheilen -
Ist eine wonnevolle Pein!

So immer Seelenblick im Seelenblick
Auch den geheimsten Wunsch des Herzens sehen,
So wenig sprechen, und sich doch verstehen -
Ist hohes martervolles Glück!

Zum Lohn für die im Zwang [verschwundne]3 Zeit
Dann bey dem [Morgenstral, warm]4, mit Entzücken
[Sich]5 Mund an Mund, und Herz an Herz [sich]6 drücken -
O dieß ist - Engelseligkeit!
