Hier ist Freude, hier ist Lust

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hier ist Freude, hier ist Lust,
Wie ich nie empfunden!
Hier muß eine Menschenbrust
Ganz und gar gesunden!

Laß denn, o Herz, der Qual
Froh dich entbinden,
Wirf sie ins tiefste Tal,
Gib sie den Winden!

Mag da drunten jedermann
Seine Grillen haben:
Wer sich hier nicht freuen kann,
Lasse sich begraben!

Laß denn, o Herz, der Qual
Froh dich entbinden!
Wirf sie ins tiefste Tal,
Gib sie den Winden!
