Nun sieht das Zweigestirn, wie still und...

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Nun sieht]1 das Zweigestirn, [wie still und mild]2 zusammen
[Dort auf und ab die beiden Sterne gehn]3,
Und ewig sich einander hold umflammen!
O, laß uns dort Bedeutung sehn!
Es geht der große Geist der Liebe
Durch seine Schöpfung, die er trägt und hält;
[Er]4 schlingt das süße Band der holden Wechseltriebe
Hier um ein Herz, und dort um eine Welt.
